Uhuru urges Kenyans to do more to protect country

26 November 2014, 16:44 William Korir

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has been criticized for urging Kenyans not to fully depend on the government for security.

The president, speaking at a function to celebrate the fight against gender violence in Nairobi Wednesday, insinuated that there was need for Kenyans to ensure of their safety themselves, saying that there are not as many policemen for every Kenyan.

He said that he feels sorry that Kenyans are dying of terror activities and said that the government would do its best to stop them.

" Many of us have said our security forces must do more and I agree with you. That said, no matter how much we do, there will never be one policeman for every citizen let us not lie to each other", he said.

He also said that the issue of double standards from leaders over violence must stop if progress is to be made.

" Leaders must condemn wrong actions, you cannot support the storage of arms in places of worship", he said of the attack by police on mosques in Mombasa.

On the stripping scourge in the country, Uhuru said that it was important for the country to ensure that women are protected.

" Our National responsibility as citizens is to internalize the need to be each other's keeper". What are you doing to stop the violence as a Citizen of Kenya. Police will not be present everywhere", he said.

" Girls who have been stripped were undressed violently in public, but people watched and took videos for social media. Who took any action? He posed.

The government has already taken some action by instituting a police team to deal with sexual violence and harassment against women.
