Nakuru’s Bondeni residents dismiss security report

17 October 2014, 15:31 Chepkwony Robert

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.

They questioned the criteria that was used to come up with the report, arguing that Bondeni might have been used as a scape goat by security organ to please its seniors.

Biashara Ward MCA Stephen Kuria together termed the report as damning aimed at embarrassing the residents who have coexisted peacefully.

“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.
