The graduates were tasked to combat insecurity and highway robberies.

Speaking at the occasion, South Sudan’s Inspector General of Police, Makur Marol Aduol, urged police personnel to disengage from politics and to promote rule of law without any compromise.

“Your duty is to impose the law, distance yourself from politics because police’s duty is to protect the law. Police is the backbone of the country and you are tasked to combat crime,” said Aduol.

According to the police official, insecurity is rampant in Greater Lakes state, Gok state, Eastern Lakes state as well as Rumbek town.

“You must work to reduce all cycle of crime and this is your first assignment to undergone,” said the Inspector General of Police.

“There is cattle raiding here, road ambushes here, there are people who are saying police is not doing their duty to reduce those crimes. Now do your duties to reduce them by all means,” stressed Aduol.

The Governor of Western Lakes state, Abraham Makoi Bol Kodi, urged the police to be faithful to law and order, reminding the graduates that fighting crime in the public was the duty of police.

“Discharge your duties correctly, fight crime and be faithful to law and order,” said Makoi, who donated five bulls to the new graduates.
