Through its corporate social responsibility, MTC has donated twenty-six smartphones to (26) twenty-six Namibia Police roadblocks across the country. The donation is aimed at facilitating instant reporting of reckless driving; irresponsible road behavior including accidents and combating crime.

 

 Nampol, Khomas Regional Commander Silvanus L. Nghishidimbwa said the handsets and start-up airtime will assist the law enforcement and  public to have a network for  communicating information quickly.    

 

 MTC’s Sponsorship and Promotions Manager, Joseph Mundjindi said, “Owing to the detriment nature of road carnage and after having attended a Road Safety Stakeholder meeting, MTC responded to the call to aid the various Roadblocks across the country in striving for a zero record of fatalities on our Namibian roads.”

Present at the event, MVA Fund Senior Manager: Accident and Injury Prevention, Sidney Boois also said “it only takes one call to prevent a potential road crush and apprehend a road violator, hence I urged the public to dial the activated traffic violation call center on 061222888 or alternatively 0819682”

 

In 2015 MTC  donated phones to the Erongo region traffic law enforcement, a prevention commitment which is further stretched to reduce preventable deaths and injuries on the Namibian roads.
