A much-needed tank that can be used for water storage was handed over to the Reneilwe Day-care Centre in Galeshewe on 13 April.

It was donated by the Police’s Music and Culture Unity Festival (Polmusca).

A few other items were also donated, such as a microwave oven, cleaning materials, blankets and party packs.

The event formed part of Polmusca’s social respon­sibility programme, led by Lt Gen. Risimati Shivuri (provincial commissioner), Lt Col Willie Mapaya (Polmusca’s national deputy chair­person) and the national executive committee.

It was conducted in anticipation of the national Polmusca Festival, which is expected to be hosted by the Northern Cape in September.

The festival is held annually during Heritage Month to celebrate diversity within the South African Police Service (SAPS) and is hosted rotatio­nally by all nine provinces.

Shivuri pledged the police’s continuous commitment towards building a good and sound relationship with the community and in this way strengthening partnership policing.

“The handover can also be seen as a token of appreciation from the police to the community, to show we care about the well-being of our children and that we will continue to protect them and see them as a priority in crime-prevention activities,” said Shivuri.

“This project can also be seen as part of the social responsibilities undertaken by Polmusca.”

Mapaya pledged full support to making the hosting of the festival in Kimberley a success.

“We are rolling up our sleeves for the success of this event,” said Mapaya.

Kebareng Cindi, the grateful principal of the centre, said they had urgently wanted to install a tank for water collection and storage ever since they had started the centre.

“But we could not, since the funds we had, did not allow us to do so,” said Cindi.

“When we heard through Lt Col Mapaya that we will get assistance, we were over the moon.”

She wished Polmusca future success so they can assist others as well.
