Public cautioned against unsafe malls

24 September 2013, 15:03 Joseph Njung’eh

Thika - Thika sub-County Security Committee on Monday cautioned members of the public against shopping in outlets without security inspection.

The committee urged residents to desist from buying in supermarkets and shopping malls where proper security inspection is not done. The team is in efforts of compelling shop owners to enhance security in their premises.

Speaking in a meeting with supermarket managers and owners within the region, the sub-County administrator, Jeremiah Gicheru, noted that most security guards in the shopping malls do not do proper checking.

Accompanied by Thika OCPD, Paul Letting, Gicheru said this might allow dangerous weapons to get into the buildings.

They called on businessmen to engage services of security firms with well trained guards and ensure that they source standard gadgets capable of detecting dangerous weapons.

The police chief asked security guards to be checking luggage left by shoppers at luggage corners expressing suspicion that attackers can leave explosives.

He also urged security firms to take their officers for training on disaster management to ensure that they are equipped with requisite skills regarding public safety.

The committee further urged members of the public to be vigilant and enhance community policing to ensure that they wipe out criminal elements in their midst.
