Kimaiyo: Police are working hard to contain insecurity

02 April 2014, 12:33 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Inspector General of Police, David Kimaiyo has defended the police over accusations that they have been unable to contain insecurity in the country.

Kimaiyo said the police work overtime because their service is a calling.

“People can talk and it is their right, but the truth is that our law agencies are doing the best for the sake of this country’s security,” he said.

He made the remarks during his visit to Kiganjo police college in Nyeri where 2 209 police recruits will be graduating this Friday.

Kimaiyo stated that majority of the recruits graduating from the college will be posted to Nairobi and Mombasa to contain rising insecurity.

“This will be crucial because the police-civilian ratio in such places is far below the one recommended by the United Nations,” said Kimaiyo.

“Even the administration police recruits graduating later in the year will be distributed across the crime prone areas as well as areas affected by cattle rustling,” he added.

He however lamented that members of the public have not adequately been volunteering information to the police to curb the Al Shabaab infiltration.

“Majority of the perpetrators of this vice are young men aged between 18 and 25 years, most of whom are our own citizens. It is the obligation of the citizens to report suspicious characters to the law agencies,” said Kimaiyo.

He stated that an early morning swoop in Eastleigh had led to the arrest of over 600 people suspected to have a link to the Monday blast that killed six people.
