The areas along the railway tracks are kept very unclean. Children from the surrounding communities are often seen loitering along the passage areas of the railway tracks and may require the blaring horns of the train to get them out of the way.
The strategic partnership pact with Cyber Peace Foundation is to build Cyber capacity, drone and emerging technology capabilities for Academia, Law Enforcement Agencies and relevant stakeholders within the African region.
