After heavy fighting over the weekend between loaders from the Gordons Market and Youths from the Gordons Youth Association, Gordons Police are now looking to come up with plans to implement for urban public safety.
Gordons Acting Police Station Commander, Grayson Sivoro has revealed that he has plans to improve policing in the area to minimize law and order issues such as the one experienced over the weekend.
Insp. Sivoro stated that now that they have cleared out most of the bus stops and reorganized them in an orderly manner, he now intends to have his officers man each station.
“Gordons is the biggest transit hub here in the capital compared to 4mile and Gerehu so public safety is a top priority for us at the moment especially after the incident over the weekend,” he said.
Meanwhile, reconciliation talks with both the GYA and the loaders of the Gordons Market have been pushed to the 10th of this month after word made by the GYA leaders to have reconciliation talks with the loaders and community leaders was broken when none of their leaders showed up at the police station.
Inspector Sivoro said he had asked both parties to reschedule their talks after being informed that the youths had not shown up in fear of their lives.
“They said they would come today, so we said to have a talk here at the station but they are scared that something might happen to them,” Sivoro added.
