The ‘ten houses’ monitoring system reaping dividends in Mogadishu’s Waaberi district
Waaberi has become the fifth district in Mogadishu to embrace fresh initiatives at community policing, currently being rolled out by the Somali Police Force (SPF) and the police component of the African Union Mission in Somalia(AMISOM).
However, such initiatives are not new to the district. Waaberi District Commissioner Ahmed Mumin Mohamed says the district was the first in Mogadishu to implement a neighborhood watch, which included the implementation of the ‘ten houses’ monitoring system, in which one resident is put in charge of 10 houses and is required to make a report every morning, about the inhabitants in the 10 houses and their activities.
