for the area MC for gun or get sued Ankara we're grateful for your time here on news days I'm sure you've heard some of your residents this is not a new phenomenon for you has this been drawn to your attention I should ask first hello thank you very much for your time here on newsdesk I'm sure you can hear me now I'm asking if this armed robbery phenomenon has been brought to your attention we've heard from residents discussed extensively at music fools please taking measures to make sure it's kept we have heard information about the newest Asian so describe the assembly Islam has also been informed about nature of our freak line other guide book indicated so for the past three weeks we've been back on you know putting up new streetlights other areas where those people have the country of Darkness to perpetrate their crime as the my serving police has a new commander also put in scratches the place to mix your drink crime down for the people who have some activity so how about in terms of patrols in the area you've talked about streetlights though but the presence of the police in the communities itself is something as well that what I just said that we puttin up the streetlights and then the police are also putting up strategies including the patrol so that they would build and fall they would make the presence of the police built-in in all the corners of the area we have another music meeting tomorrow and we were able to give you vividly what we have already done and some of this for security reasons might not be able to put them online I'd be the way but is it a situation that the police have under control you'd say yes seriously they working assiduously to catch this situation but whilst we have you though was when your community another issue that was of concern to the residents is the poor state of roots is they're simply doing anything about it anytime soon yes you truly have been in my community looking at cannot I don't know that we have the more role I believe in a car we can reward you step one in the object somewhere we have so many rules and it's only if I can say three that are tower and you know the assembly has the capacity to as much the empty is dropping the farm most of the schools have already been aborted except for the fact that is taking a little longer for the contrast is to peer inside and that has been worried for now so we'll be working on them but those under the certainty that comes reshape all you know Westone we are working on as I speak with you we are working on about eight or nine rows within the limits of the assembly but those beyond that supposed to be for urban roads all these I we've been working for them look away and contracted at but I thought we'll be monitoring here because we live in that community as well so we'll be monitoring progress in that community so no that will be on your tails and check in every step of the way we are grateful for your time I get you down Ankara is MC for Gandalf and like I said we live in that community because join use and it's a Fred Smith is there and we'll be monitoring events there but what's the bigger picture I thought Sandra heel and arch water is quite a great community to live in and it looks like you have problems yes there is a great community to live in lovely people unfortunately criminals are taking advantage of the how kind the people are and how close they are with themselves you know so in some of the cases I came across in during this story there's mobile money Vanda very close to where I live that shop has been robbed say five times I between last year and now about five times join News had occasion to go the late last year to do a report on at the time they had been robbed three times now since this report we did the security process was increased and it slowed a bit but the search had two more attacks at this mobile and even the landing show but you had your MC you talked about the presence of street lights as well as presence of police in the area and since these issues were brought to light is that a case well for the presence of the police it will be difficult to ascertain because a lot of the times you see the police vehicle moving you're not sure whether they are on a dream to you know track down criminals or they are on their private beach because a lot of the times they come up I see certain individuals that's if they're going somewhere not actually monitoring activities about the streetlights about the street why three weeks ago a number of them have been fixed well some streets have lights others don't and we there are some places especially where Tantra Hill near Allah the the street where people cannot use at all you had one of the people whose residential spoke to us that after 7:00 you cannot use that road and part is so dangerous it is the same place where understand Franklin Cluedo has had his car you know taking nice from him one time it's the same place where
