Politicians want police patrols increased during Christmas

10 December 2014, 16:27 Samuel Kisika

Bungoma - Political leaders in Bungoma have asked the area County Commissioner, Maalim Mohamed to increase police patrols during this Christmas festivities.

The leaders, Walinya Mukhamule who contested the 2013 elections for Bungoma gubernatorial but lost, and his counterpart for Women Representative Kelan Wabomba, said the patrols will significantly reduce cases of insecurity.

Their call comes following a series of murder cases of boda boda operators by bandits during late evenings and early mornings while on their businesses.

"As we approach Christmas festivities, we ask the County Commissioner to ensure there is enough patrol for residents' security," said Mukhamule.

"Yesterday morning, bandits attacked and killed travellers waiting to board a vehicle at the stage. If such incidences persist, how are residents going to carry on with their normal business activities?" he posed.

However, Mukhamule raised concern over ineffective health services offered at the Bungoma District Hospital particularly delays in attending to patients seeking urgent treatment.

"Doctors at the Bungoma Referral hospital take a lot of time before attending to victims of banditry due to lack of essential facilities such as gloves, bandages among others," said Mukhamule.

"The County received enough money for the health sector from the national government and shortage of essential medical facilities should not occur at all," he warned.

Wabomba faulted President Uhuru Kenyatta over his recent remarks that citizens should be in charge of their own security.

She said although citizens have a role to play in fostering security, it is the constitutional mandate of the government in place to ensure citizens enjoy their right to security.

"How can residents travelling on boda boda who are attacked and stabbed to death by bandits be in charge of their security?" posed Wabomba.

The leaders were addressing the press following rising cases of insecurity in the County.
