MP challenges Govt. to review security policies

02 December 2013, 20:59

Bondo - Lack of proper policies on matters of security is to blame for the increasing rate of insecurity in this country.

Kasipul/Kabondo MP Silvance Osele said escalating insecurity was a serious matter which needs a comprehensive blue print to combat instead of adopting fire- fighting tactics.

Osele challenged President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto to come out and lead from the front by directing those in charge of security in this country to come up with a water tight plan to prosecute all security matters in the country.

The legislator noted that the government’s move to develop the ‘Nyumba Kumi’ initiative is not the solution to the issue of insecurity in this country because it is not different from the Community Policing Programme that has already failed.

Osele, was addressing journalists shortly after attending a Christian youth fellowship at Maranda High School in Bondo constituency over the weekend, argued that the Nyumba kumi idea was good but as the Cord coalition, they would have wished to know why the government thinks that the initiative will be new when it had initially failed through the community policing concept.

He has alternatively called for the review of the police training curriculum to enable a yearly intake of police recruits as a way of containing insecurity, arguing that the current training which lasts 18 months has tremendously affected the police to citizens’ ratio hence the rising rate of insecurity in the country.
