Nyeri leaders want security improved

12 June 2012, 23:59 Joseph Wambugu

Nyeri County leaders have called upon the security machinery to move with speed and improve insecurity in Othaya.

Nyeri County chairman Wachira Maina Ken said it was unfortunate that the situation has reached an alarming rate and called upon the provincial administration, police and even members of the public to help improve the situation.

He said a permanent solution must be found immediately so that traders in Othaya town can do their business in a crime free zone and also to ensure that insecurity will not spill over to other neighbouring towns.

The chairman was speaking a day after local residents complained over the rampant cases of insecurity.

Hardly a day passes without a case of shop breakages reported in town despite Othaya police station being less than 500 metres.

Ken was speaking during the burial ceremony of Othaya prominent farmer David King’ori Matu at Kirai village.

Also present during the ceremony was Central PC Kiplimo Rugut, former assistant minister Dick Wathika, Nyeri South DC David Koskei, Othaya Parliamentary aspirant Emilio Kabui and a manager with Equity Bank in Nairobi Steve Gichohi.

Matu was the best and first coffee farmer in Othaya.

The PC said the Government will continue with crackdown of alcohol in the area and also reduce the number of bars selling alcohol to minimal level.
