SHE is passionate about fighting crime and one of her main targets will be eradicating drug trafficking and prostitution.

Major-General Sethenya Nxamagele was promoted to her new rank on 1 June and is now the new cluster commander for the Ugu policing cluster.

She will be overseeing 17 policing stations and a number of specialised units in the area.

Nxamagele took up the post of station commander of Port Shepstone in April 2010 and the station has since been awarded by the MEC for Community Safety and Liaison, twice as Best Police Station, Best Crime Prevention and Best TRT.

She believes that without the commitment and dedication of her members this could never have been achieved and thanks them for their hard work during the past six years.

“The co-operation and willingness from the community to assist the police is just as important. I have the highest regard to the community in my policing area for their dedication,” she said.

She praised them for joining in the fight against crime, especially the business fraternity who engaged in community orientated projects such as homeless children and to assist those in need.

She encourages others also to join in and assist the SAPS in upcoming projects.

Nxamagele will especially knock on the doors of other governmental departments to, with SAPS, come up with a strategy to alleviate drug abuse and prostitution.

“I will be concentrating, together with the relevant stakeholders to address the issue of vacant premises which have become a haven for drug lords and prostitutes and which contributes to crime,” she said.

Apart from many different courses and workshops, she has completed a one year Safety and Security Executive Development Programme in Paarl recently. She is also the mother of two sons and a daughter. - Supplied.
