21 January 2015, 17:01
Nairobi - Interior Cabinet Secretary, Joseph Nkaissery has asked defiant teachers who have vowed not to return to North Eastern for fear of insecurity to stop seeking transfers and report to back work.
Nkaissery said proper security measures have been put in place by integrating all security systems in the country to curb the terror attacks witnessed in the region last year as well as other internal conflicts such as the Baringo tribal clashes, cattle rustling among others.
“We have developed a security strategy to ensure our security systems work collaboratively to improve security around our borders. We have already adopted the strategy and within six months, proper security measure will be in place,” said Nkaissery.
He added that teachers should not be worried about their security since the government is committed to ensure they are protected.

“The teachers should be brave enough and return to North Eastern because the government has put security measures in place and we are still coordinating all our security agencies to avoid any more security lapses,” said Nkaissery.
The Interior CS also directed his counterpart Lands CS, Charity Ngilu and the National Lands Commission Chairman, Muhammed Swazuri to name the person responsible for the grabbing of Lang’ata Road Primary School playground in conjunction with the National Assembly Lands committee chaired by Tharaka MP, Alex Mwiru.
The private developer, allegedly a powerful politician in the government had claimed ownership of the playground and put around it a perimeter wall in an effort to expand his nearby Weston Hotel.
“The Lands Cabinet Secretary and National Lands Commission chair should come out today and name the private developer linked to the school’s land grabbing,” said Nkaissery.
“If they fail to name the person, they should be ready for consequences,” he warned.
He was speaking to the press after representing President Uhuru Kenyatta during the opening of the fifth session of the Forum of Parliaments of Member States of the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region.
