Zimbabwean-born politician Nicolle Ndiweni has made history once again, this time by being officially elected as the new Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Derbyshire. The 35-year-old, who hails from rural Karoi, has been a prominent figure in UK politics, notably becoming the first black councillor of Hucknall in 2015.

Ndiweni’s victory marks a significant milestone, not only for her personal journey but also for the community she represents. In a celebratory message, she expressed her gratitude to those who supported her candidacy, emphasizing her commitment to serving the people of Derbyshire wholeheartedly.

“I don’t have enough words to thank each and every one of you who voted for me and put your trust in Labour,” Ndiweni stated. “In me, you will have a PCC who is committed to serving you wholeheartedly and will always put your needs first.”

Her election to the role of PCC signifies a shift towards greater diversity and representation in law enforcement and policymaking. Ndiweni’s background and experiences are expected to bring a fresh perspective to the position, enabling her to address the diverse needs of Derbyshire’s communities effectively.

As she prepares to assume her new responsibilities, Ndiweni’s supporters anticipate positive changes and a renewed focus on community engagement, accountability, and inclusivity within the Derbyshire Police force.
