The work of a vigilant group is to aid the police in combating crime in the rural areas but it is quite appalling that today most of the people that join the vigilante are people that aid and abate crime in our localities. Sometimes they perpetrate their evil deeds in consonance, with the village heads who help them in perverting justice by stopping law abiding citizens from reporting criminal their activities to the police. These miscreants in vigilante groups are dangerous to the survival of innocent ones in our villages.
It is an act of cowardice for one to involve himself in vigilante only to use it as source of income rather than combating crime. This makes it possible for them to witch-hunt individuals that stand for the truth.
It is now time for the state security service and the police to scrutinize our vigilante groups now that the community government is becoming a reality.
