THE Thabong Police Station’s new junior station managers were announced at the station’s management meeting held on 13 August. These junior managers will serve for a two-year term.

The junior station managers is a flagship project of the Thabong Police Station, aimed at fostering a culture for responsible citizens. It also serves as an intervention in conflict at schools.

The new office bearers are Thabo Rathaba (junior station commander, 14), Thembi Mthonjeni (deputy station commander, 17) and Thabiso Mabaso (junior detective commander, 16).

The outgoing leaders, Neo Setai (junior station commander, 18), Tlotliso May (deputy junior station commander, 20) and Pulane Malgas (junior detective commander, 18), gracefully passed on the baton to the incoming youth at the meeting.

Candidates are elected from local schools in Thabong, Welkom. The outgoing members, Setai, May and Malgas, attend school at Lephola and Teto.

The newly-elected leaders are from Thotagauta, Lebogang and Leseding. The outgoing leaders’ office terms end in December this year.

They have been on the programme for three years, serving the community under the leadership of Sgt Elsie Tselane, who serves as the Thabong police youth coordinator.

According to Tselane, the outgoing junior management had a great impact on crime prevention among the youth. “They addressed their peers during morning parades at their respective schools where they encouraged them not to be in conflict with the law.

“They were, therefore, mainly active at their schools. However, they also helped us to engage with the young gang members, encouraging them to refrain from gangsterism,” said Tselane.

Malgas, outgoing junior detective commander, was actively involved in women’s activities during Women’s Month, assisting police members in encouraging women to equip themselves by studying before marriage to be independent from men for survival.

Brig. Cois Muller, station commander of the Thabong Police Station, commended the incoming and outgoing managers in taking up the responsibility.

“It is because of young people like you that I believe there is a bright future for us in this country. You just need to influence the others too. I believe we have chosen the correct ones to be the leaders on your levels and you will be ambassadors for this police station. Whatever you do outside, you will set an example for others.”
