The families of Police Officers at the Red-sea Barracks banded together to present a petition to Prime Minister, James Marape.
Disgruntled family and friends marched up to the Gordons Police Barracks demanding that the Government receive their petition.
In an open forum facilitated by the NCD Metropolitan Superintendent, Gideon Ikumu, the petition comes after the discovery of the body of Late Senior Constable, Nelson Kalimda two days ago.
Speaking first, the mothers raised points that were outlined in the petition to the Police Hierarchy and the Minister for Internal Security, Peter Tsiamalili Jnr who was accompanied by the Governor of Hela, Philip Undialu and other prominent citizens from the province.
Presenting the petition, the families placed their demands to the Prime Minister, which was received on his behalf by Tsiamalili Jnr.
Gathering near the field, the relatives and friends of the Late Snr Constable put forward their demands, seeking justice for their fallen brother.
The family then stated that they would like to see justice prevail and all suspects involved to face the full brunt of the law regardless of their status and have called on the Government to see to it that these changes are done.
Addressing the crowd, IS Minister Tsiamalili thanked the mothers for voicing their concerns, as they had highlighted many important issues during their speech.
He stated that politicians may come and go but the system of government must remain to protect those who uphold the rule of law.
“The system of Government must remain, must be conducive and must protect those that serve the system.”
Tsiamalili further assured the families that were present that he would review some of the policies currently in place and conduct necessary reforms.
