45 firearms recovered in Meru

25 May 2012, 15:53 Anthony Muriuki

The provincial administration in conjunction with the Njuri Ncheke council of elders and the community policing initiative have recovered 45 firearms within the Meru County.

The Principal assistant to the Meru County regional Commissioner for Eastern upper region Dixon Kwanusu said the District Security Intelligence Committees  has been in the forefront of promoting Community Policing where members of the Public and security agencies share information with each other instead of seeking it from strangers who at times are unco-operative.

He said the decision to work harmoniously with all stakeholders within the county has led to the recovery of the 45 firearms and expressed his optimism that more will be recovered in order to contain crime.

"Community policing has also eradicated prejudices that members of the public held about the Police officers and are now more confident in sharing information confidentially.The joint efforts between the provincial Administration and residents has seen fostering of peaceful co-existence between communities in areas previously affected by inter clan communal conflicts arising from boundary disputes, land and water as well as pasture conflicts in areas that are yet to be adjudicated,"said Kwanusu.

Kwanusu cited cultural festivals, peace barazas, and committee meetings with local leaders as avenues that have provided security to guard against cattle rustling that gives way to revenge attacks and displacement of communities.
