Nakuru heightens security following Westgate attack

25 September 2013, 14:05 Robert Chepkwony

Nakuru - Nakuru County government has called on local residents as well as security officers to be on high alert following the Westgate terror attack that claimed over 60 lives and left hundreds injured.

Through a joint statement by the County’s deputy governor, Joseph Ruto, and members of the County assembly on behalf of governor Kinuthia Mbugua, who is on a tour to China, the leaders called on residents to be vigilant especially in crowded places.

Deputy Governor, Joseph Ruto, urged the security department to be alert and cooperate with members of the public who are ready to submit information on suspicious people.

“As the County leadership, we call upon the security arm as well as the residents to be on high alert in a bid to improve security and prevent similar incidences,” said Ruto.

On behalf of the County leadership, he further sent condolences to families who lost their loved ones in the terror attack, as well as quick recovery to those injured and are recuperating in various hospitals.

At the same time, Ruto commended the Kenyans’ spirit of unity in responding to the call for financial aid towards the Kenya Red Cross operations, as well as call for blood donation.

Echoing Ruto’s sentiments, Visoi Ward Member of County Assembly, Gitau Kamau, reiterated the need to carry out thorough security scans in supermarkets and major buildings.

He further called on the government to carry out investigations to ascertain how aliens enter into the country without being noticed, and possibly identify who allowed them in.
