He said while enjoyed comparing the country’s system with others abroad, those countries were not doing anything extraordinary other than enforcing rules and regulations.

“A society where enforcement is jaundiced or non-existent is inevitably sucked faster into the black hole of a failed society.

“There is no better prevention tool than a vigorous enforcement regime, one that is applied across the board in strict adherence with extant laws”, Bawa stated.
