The new station commander of Nelspruit Police Station, Brig Prince Hlupheka Ngobeni.

MBOMBELA –  This is the stern warning from the new station commander of Nelspruit Police Station, Brig Prince Hlupheka Ngobeni.

He was appointed on April 1 and took over the hot seat on April 16.

Lowvelder interviewed Ngobeni on Friday. “I began my career in the police in 1983 at John Vorster Square as a constable.”

In 1988 he was stationed in Hoedspruit as a warrant officer. In 2000 he was appointed captain. In 2006 he became a lieutenant-colonel in Giyani. In 2009 he was transferred to Seshego, and in 2011 transferred to Namagala as station commander.

In 2012 he became a full colonel and in 2018 he attained the rank of brigadier and was given the post in Mbombela.

“I am meeting with the community police forums and all the various security companies to get community involvement to assist in the fight against crime. I have a clear mission. That is to reduce crime. The community must feel safe in their houses.”

Ngobeni said his door was open to the community. “Let us exchange views and information. Give us your input. Let us make Mbombela a safer place.”

He added that he was going to ensure serious criminals and repeat offenders were refused bail.

“I will be meeting with prosecutors to work together to see how we are going to fight crime and ensure serious criminals do not roam the streets.”

Ngobeni also stated that CCTV cameras must be revived in the city.

“I want to thank Brig Gerrie Agenbag for the good work he has done. He has left a high standard of disciplined members.” Agenbag was transferred to the provincial detective office.

Ngobeni said he needed everyone’s commitment to fight crime. “I don’t have time to play until crime is beaten. Every concerned citizen wants to see crime dealt with accordingly.”

Enquiries: Ngobeni on 066-480-1408.
