    Strengthen the police force. More training, surveilence and more visible. The police is not as professional as the army, air force or navy. Please make them world class.

    GOV managed to control these to satisfactory level. I expected more of these after the war. If manage to catch and punish these guys we can improve the security levels further.

    Dangerous trend, culprits need to be caught before it goes out of hand.

    How about cameras in and around banks instead of inside prisons ??

    MagodisThuma Thursday, 30 June 2011 03:49 PM

    Its time banks and other financial institutions came up with fool proof solutions to these problems. I'm sure the loss will be borne by the rest of the customers.
