My goals for the new year would be to build a city that ad­dresses rec­on­cil­i­a­tion, a car­ing city.

We have set up many dif­fer­ent pro­grammes to achieve this, in­clud­ing more road­blocks and check­ing ev­ery car en­ter­ing the prov­ince.

We are also mak­ing peo­ple aware of the cam­eras, as well as pro­vid­ing lo­ca­tions along the road where we will test for drunk driv­ing.
