13 March 2015, 09:16 Ken Wekesa

Mombasa - Mombasa County Commissioner, Nelson Marwa wants police to investigate cases of phone tapping that is on the increase in the area following reports that criminal gangs are eavesdropping on conversations of businessmen and other prominent persons.

“We have information that a group of criminals are now tapping businessmen phone calls. We do not know their motives but have asked the national government to look into the matter,” said Marwa.

Marwa urged the communication service providers to look into the matter and assist the government to arrest the criminals that are now posing a big threat to the security of the country.

Speaking to the press after holding a meeting with non-governmental organizations in Mombasa, the County Commissioner also revealed that the anti narcotics unit in Mombasa are now tracking drug barons.

“Police are currently arresting drug baron and closing down all supply conduits in the region. We hope this operation will put to an end the supply fo drugs in the region,” said Marwa, who also noted that he had issued a vacate notice to all individuals with kiosks near schools.

Marwa said that the police had intelligence that the kiosks are selling drugs to school going children.

“We want all those kiosks to be demolished. We have names of those who are selling drugs and we will arrest them all," he noted.

Rights groups in the area said they were ready to work with the government in ensuring that the region is secure.

“This is the beginning of our collective effort to work with the government towards ensuring that security is maintained in Mombasa,” said Muhuri programs Officer, Francis Auma.
