Friday 29th June, 2018… Equity Bank Tanzania has today handed over 5 mobile police posts to the Ministry of Home Affairs through the Hon. Prime Minister of the United Republic of Tanzania in Dodoma. The mobile police posts were donated to the bank as a way to bolster the efforts of the government in promoting security.


During the hand over, Equity Bank Tanzania Managing Director, Mr. Joseph Iha, expressed the bank’s sincere gratitude to the Government of Tanzania for inviting Equity Bank to be part of this noble and worthy initiative noting that the launching of mobile police posts represents a great day for policing.


“We are already seeing the fruits of Community Policing which has maximized good cooperation between the community and the Police Force in curbing crimes as well as peace keeping and security, which is in line with our vision of championing the socio-economic prosperity of our people. That is why we continue to roll out services and products that support them in their journey of socio-economic transformation,” he said.


“As a bank, we fully support the initiatives of the government’s police service to improve the everyday lives of our people and we are delighted to be part of this initiative. This builds on our existing relationship with the Police Force,” Mr. Iha added.


While receiving the mobile police posts, Hon. Prime Minister of the United Republic of Tanzania, Majaliwa Kassim Majaliwa, thanked Equity Bank for the donation of the mobile posts to the police and urged the private sector and other banks to take this exemplary gesture as a challenge to encourage support of government initiatives including community policing.
