Together we ride faster
The Namibian Police stationed in Tsumeb received six bicycle from Cymot late in December to help them patrol the community over the Christmas and New Year holidays. As of the beginning of this year, the bicycles are used for the regular patrols the police conduct to ensure the safety of the residents.
The six bicycles were donated by the Ohorongo Otavi Community Trust together with Cymot. The bicycles were provided by Cymot’s Tsumeb branch.
The trust said earlier this month, similar donations will go to the Namibian Police in Otavi and Otjiwarongo in the foreseeable future.
At the ceremony where the bicycles were presented to the Tsumeb Police, Chief Inspector Nguulivali commended the Ohorongo Otavi Community Trust and Cymot for their involvement in the safety and security of the Tsumeb community. He conveyed the police’s gratitude noting that the bicycles will assist the police to be more visible, and to respond faster when an emergency arises.
“The safety of communities remains an important factor, hence the commitment to join hands with the communities in the fight against crime. Ohorongo Cement will always be a partner in initiatives such as this through its Trust,” said Mr Rudolf Coetzee, General Administration Manager at Ohorongo Cement.
Ohorongo Cement said many institutions have benefited from donations by the Trust during the past five years with a total value exceeding N$10 million.
“We are a responsible corporate citizen and try to give back to the community where we can. Obviously one can not help everybody, however, by setting an example, we are hoping to also inspire other companies to follow suit,” said Mr Hans-Wilhelm Schütte, Managing Director of Ohorongo Cement.
