23 October 2014, 10:51
Nyandarua - A youth profiling exercise will be carried out in Nyandarua County to ensure young people are not involved in crime, the area acting Deputy County Commissioner (DCC) Alex Kaburu has said.
He said the profiling is part of enhancing the Nyumba Kumi initiative and also fighting youth radicalization in the county.
“Parents will be required to disclose whereabouts of their children and what they do for a living wherever they are," Kaburu who was accompanied by the Ol Joroorok location senior chief Samuel Mwangi, said.
He said area residents had been informed about the intention of the exercise during Mashujaa Day celebrations at Ol Joroorok stadium on Monday.

Speaking in Nyahururu town, Kaburu urged the Nyandarua County government to speed up implementation of the Alcohol law enacted recently so that sell of alcohol can be controlled in the area.
“The two-year lacuna created by lack of County law had allowed proliferation of cheap drinks sold in buildings that have not been inspected,” he said.
He said implementation of County law will allow the administrators to inspect buildings before they are licensed to sell alcohol and also ensure only bonafide traders are allowed to do the business.
