Do not risk spending the long weekend in the cells: Police

A fair warning has been given by police to those who plan on drink driving or drinking in vehicles this Independence weekend.

Assistant Police commissioner for Traffic Jerry Frank says people face the risks of spending the whole of the long weekend in  police cells if they are  arrested.

Frank warns that since it is the long weekend  and most of the cases will not be processed until well into Monday next week. He has warned people not to misbehave and get caught.

He says there have been cases where people are arrested on Friday and end up spending the weekend in the cells.

“If you want to enjoy your long Independence weekend then please do so, but do it within the law so that you do not get caught and put in the cell.” Frank warned.

All traffic police operations have started in conjunction with the police Independence Day operations around the country.
