Police promise action as Nairobi crime wave heightens

17 March 2014, 23:08 William Korir

Nairobi - Police in Nairobi are drawing up plans to ensure that the rising crime wave in the city is curbed amidst unprecedented levels of insecurity.

There has been increased insecurity in Nairobi in recent months with the worrying bit being the continued attack on prominent areas and people.

Areas such as Gigiri, Runda, Karen, Westlands, preserves of the rich and notably highly protected by both police and private security guards have been the hardest hit.

Break-ins, burglaries and carjackings have increased in recent times and thus police have taken measures to reduce the striking levels of insecurity.

Top police officers met last week in a move to address the problem with the likes of Inspector General David Kimaiyo also involved in the meetings.

It is understood that he stressed on the importance of increasing surveillance and reducing the number of casualties and injuries in such cases.

A police source also alluded to the fact that there is set to be a big shake-up in the police leadership in the city.

" There will be transfers soon. The cases of insecurity are worrying, the source said.

Central Police OCPD Patrick Oduma also said that there was need to reduce the rates of crime in the city.

" We are looking at ways. Yes, it has increased and we are talking about it, he said.

It is understood that there will be increased police patrols, intelligence and other methods used to try reduce the levels of insecurity in the city.
