Nakuru - Residents of Nakuru’s Bondeni slum in collaboration with local leadership have jointly rubbished a report by Security Research and Information Centre that classified the area as leading crime spot in Kenya.

“The research report should be declared null and void as none of the residents has come out saying he or she was interviewed on the same prior to release of the report," said Kuria, adding that the area has been calm and free of crime due to installed streetlights and two police posts.
Fatuma Yusuf, a resident dismissed the report saying those who claim to have conduced the research should provide supporting material on their methodology.
“We are astonished by the claims because we have been living in peace and we feel secure," Yusuf said.
