Nkosi also called on business owners to report business robberies as soon as they could to the police station.

“We have noticed that many business owners around the area delay to report such cases to the police and many of them end up tampering with the scene of crime which may make it difficult for police to find the necessary evidence which could lead to the arrest and conviction of suspects,” he said.
