“A few days left for Christmas and to celebrate New Year 2021. So you should not be a victim of a road accident or being accused of  causing one. From Sunday (20), we will deploy police officers in mufti on public transport facilities in order to prevent offences such as drunk driving, reckless driving and using mobile phones while on the wheels.

DIG Rohana said that police officers who are on board in civvies would also collect information about the persons who fail to wear face masks, respect the social distance concept and also about the drivers and conductors. (Darshana Sanjeewa Balasuriya)

Yesterday's T20 game in Sedden Park, Hamilton NZ, there was 15,000 spectators at the ground!! HOW did NZ manage to be, COVID FREE !??? Incidentally DURING NZ lockdown health minister David Clark was demoted due to breaching lockdown rules and he eventually resigned due to his oversight !! Hmmmm!!
