Vihiga MP blames security agents for rising insecurity

Vihiga - Vihiga MP Yusuf Chanzu has blamed the rising wave of crime and insecurity in the country on sabotage from both the security agents and the people who have lacked collective responsibility.
Chanzu said security agents had failed to conform to the new tricks that are employed by terrorists day by day and thus the incessant bomb attacks on innocent people in the major cities in the country.
“The terrorists are forging new tricks every day and our security forces have failed to conform to them. People are also not helping in curbing insecurity, instead they are just blaming the government,” said Chanzu.
He was speaking at the Vihiga constituency CDF headquarters after meeting the Uwezo Fund committee and instigating mechanisms of issuing the money to the various groups in the region.
The Vihiga MP alleged that Kenyans who were entrusted with the responsibility of making sure that the country is kept at bay from terrorists have failed to live up to their expectations.
He further said that in many societies in the country, people have been reluctant to embrace the community policing programme.
“Most of the people in the country are reluctant to take up to the new mechanisms that are employed in the country that are meant to help them in embracing security of the country. Some live close to the terrorists but fear informing the police because they are their relatives,” he said.
Chanzu further said that he was going to make sure that his constituents benefit fully from the Uwezo Fund kitty and had already enlisted several groups for the women and youths who are bound to receive the money.
“We want to be very fair to all groups in the constituency by giving them the necessary support in utilising the money so that we uplift their status,” he said.
