23 August 2013, 11:11
Nakuru - Nakuru County governor Kinuthia Mbugua has called on members of the public to cooperate with security agents in order to help them fight crime in the County.
Speaking at Kabazi trading centre in Subukia on Thursday, Kinuthia said that the war on crime cannot be won without contribution from members of the public.
He said that it is important to appreciate the work of security officers given that they are charged with a difficult task of ensuring all Kenyans and their properties are protected and condemned recent attacks on police officers saying the officers also have an obligation to carry themselves with dignity so as to win the respect of the public.
The governor challenged leaders at all levels to respect police officers in the course of their work.
The call comes in the wake of an incident last Friday where Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri was charged with assaulting a policewoman in Nakuru town.
