Government to recruit 10,000 police officers: Ruto

14 April 2014, 09:09 William Korir

Nairobi - The government will recruit 10,000 new police officers to curb insecurity, deputy president William Ruto has said.

The country has of late witnessed a high level of insecurity with terrorist attacks as well as general insecurity threatening the state of the nation.

With measures being sought to curb the vice, the government has been working on solutions to the menace.

"We shall not negotiate with the terrorists as there is no middle ground on this matter. We must fight terrorism to its logical conclusion," Ruto said in Nandi County Sunday.

Ruto said that the ongoing security operation countrywide will continue until all terror suspects behind the wave of insecurity are arrested.

The deputy president added that more resources will be invested in the police service including modern equipment and in training to cope with the task at hand.

This announcement came just after president Uhuru Kenyatta announced a deal with Turkey to modernize the police force.

" We have promised to improve the lives of Kenyans but this will only be possible if we have a safe country and we will work harder than ever to ensure so, Ruto added.

The police force has been accused of being either too slow to react or unaware of impending attacks in the country, thus the need for modernization.

And with the needs of the country increasing amidst an increased population and the new system of county governments, there is added need for a safer and more vigilant country.
