MBABANE: The new Mbabane Police clinic will benefit even members of the public in the surrounding areas, National Commissioner William Dlamini has disclosed.
Speaking in the national radio today, the National Commissioner thanked the Government of the United States of America and that of Eswatini for their support in the establishment of the clinic. Dlamini said as the police, the nature of their job requires that they consistently seek medication to stay healthy for effective policing.
“We would like to thank the Government of the United States and that of Eswatini for their support in the establishment of the clinic. These police clinics are not for the officers but even members of the public in the surrounding areas are benefiting” he said.
Dlamini said the establishment of these health facilities would help in ensuring that the police stay health to perform their duties effectively.
“Police duties expose them to dangers that might comprise their lives hence they must consistently seek medical attention.
“Even in the roads during accidents, you will find the police assisting victims and that might expose their lives to the danger of contracting diseases. It is very important that they are taken care off through the establishment of these health facilities” said the National Commissioner.
The Police Chief then encouraged all officers to take health issues seriously adding that he expects every police officer to go for testing.
“We encourage officers to eat a balanced diet, male officers should consider circumcising as part of a healthy requirement” he said.
