Melchiade Ruceke, Permanent Secretary to the Ministry of Public Security says those regulations which are not often respected include the non-health care coverage for employees; employing people for more than six months without a duly signed contract; lack of liability insurance, non-wearing of uniforms specific to each society and the illegal use of military and police clothing. “Nothing will prevent the ministry from suspending definitely those companies which didn’t abide by those regulations,” he says.

In December 2017, the ministry of public security and private security companies met to assess the implementation of those regulations. Following the recommendations from the meetings, those companies have seized from their agents 458 pairs of boots, 250 belts, 13 raincoats, a beret and eight pairs of military and police socks.
