Nyeri - Nyeri County Commissioner, Michael Mwangi on Friday appealed to members of public to make use of the Nyumba Kumi Initiative to expose any criminal elements living amongst them.
Mwangi said laxity amongst residents in getting to know those living in their neighborhoods as stipulated in the initiative has contributed to the rising cases of insecurity.
Speaking in Nyeri town after presiding over an event dubbed ‘100 days of Rapid Results Initiative (RRI)' training for security organs in Central region, Mwangi said the Nyumba Kumi initiative will help combat crime as criminals will not thrive in these areas for fear of being exposed.
He at the same time said that during the 100 days of the RRI, they will put in place a stringent vetting process for those seeking important document such as national Identity cards and birth certificates to ensure only bonafide Kenyans acquire them.
Mwangi further said they will also step up the fight against poaching which has posed a threat to the economy of the country.
“Tourism being the third largest income earner in the country is a critical part of our economy and anyone indulging in poaching is engaging in economic sabotage,” the Commissioner said.
