While appreciating the intervention of Security Agencies in the protection of lives and property in the state, Gov. Mutfwang urged them to redouble their efforts in discharging their constitutional responsibility of protecting innocent citizens.

He urged them to ensure the perpetrators are fished out and made to face the consequences of their actions.

Similarly, he warned the perpetrators to desist forthwith from such dastardly acts, stressing that government is determined to fish them out to face justice.
