06 August 2013, 15:19
Hoteliers in Nakuru County on Tuesday called for increased security to curb any acts of lawlessness during this time when the town is hosting over 90 000 participants in the National Music Festivals.
They urged the security personnel to ensure that visitors are given adequate security and called on the residents to be friendly and cooperate with the participants who started visiting on Monday.
The hotel operators under the umbrella of the Kenya Budget Hotels Nakuru Chapter also commended the festival organisers for selecting the town as venue for the event.
The officials led by Ernest Kiarie, Sarah Tomno and James Gichuru said they had agreed to make concession to the participants by giving out their facilities at discounted prices.
The five-day event involves College and Secondary school students drawn from all over the country and is expected to end at the weekend. Police have assured the organisers of increased patrols to curb any crime.
Kiarie also appealed to Kiosk owners and other business people not to overcharge the visitors majority of whom are students so that the town's good image is maintained.
The hoteliers thanked the governor for the relative peace in the county and expressed confidence that the residents will continue to coexist harmoniously.
They added that the county has the potential to attract more investors since it enjoys privileged position on the trans-Africa corridor and is strategically located at the heart of the country.
