The installation of this police post in this place was one of the requests made, particularly by the MLC and the Provincial Assembly of Kinshasa, following the killing last weekend of Daniel Botethi.

For his part, Colonel Kanyama, commander of the police for the district of Lukunga, reassured the population: "We have been instructed to secure the area with the elements of our district. I believe these men are disciplined, obedient, courteous and firm in carrying out their mission. The population should work with the police. They should call us. They must inform us of what's happening in their neighbourhoods, on their avenues. Then the police will intervene to secure them. We are at their service. Let the people give us missions."

Colonel Kanyama spoke this Tuesday morning during the Okapi Action show on Radio Okapi.
