Police need to be well remunerated, says MP

19 December 2013, 10:06 Wilshere

Bahati - Bahati MP, Kimani Ngunjiri, has said that regular police officers need to be well remunerated since they do a lot of work to protect Kenyans.

Ngunjiri said that it is a shame that most police officers are still sharing houses despite working tirelessly to protect the public.

“Our police officers do a lot of work and it is only wise that we can pay them well because some them are still sharing houses yet they have families,” he said.

Speaking on Wednesday morning during the opening of a police post at Kiamaina in Bahati constituency, Kimani said that each police officer deserves to have a private house.

He said that police reforms should include better living standards for all police officers in the country.

“Each police officer should have a private house they do a good job and this should be part of the reforms we should see in the country,” he said.

He also called on the local residents to work closely with the police to improve the level of security in the area.

At the same time, Kimani called on the traffic department to arrest any truck drivers who will be found using the Bahati-Solai road with intention of avoiding the weigh bridge located along Nakuru-Nairobi highway.

He said that the government spent billions of shillings in constructing the Bahati road and that he will not allow heavy trucks to damage the road.

“The Kibaki administration used a lot of money in constructing this road and that is why we have to safeguard it from truck drivers,” he said.
