Nakuru - Nakuru County Governor Kinuthia Mbugua has said that his government will not relent in the fight against terrorism in the county.
He said that security will remain beefed up across the county to curb illegal migrants who could be escaping from the ongoing crackdown in Nairobi and Mombasa.
“Our security personnel remain on high alert because we do not want any illegal migrants in our county,” he said.
Speaking on Saturday in Nakuru town during the inspection of projects, governor Mbugua said that his administration will not be lenient with any person who will be caught hosting a terrorist.
The former AP commandant also urged landlords in the county to be on the lookout for new clients saying some of the terrorists could be masquerading as genuine tenants.
“Any terrorist sympathizers will not be spared and that is why our landlords should also be very careful when renting out houses,” he said.
He also challenged local residents to make good use of the Nyumba Kumi initiative saying it will help curb attacks before they take place.
He also said that plans are underway to increase the number of police patrol vehicles in the estates and towns in the county.
Mbugua said the fight against terrorism in the county is a collective responsibility of every Kenya adding that every citizen ought to help the central and county governments in eradicating the vice.
