Police station risks closure over cracks, leaking roof

04 March 2016, 14:52 Joseph Njung'eh

Murang'a - The Department of Public Health has given Murang’a Police Station a three-month notice to renovate some of the station’s houses failure to which they will be demolished.

In a notice, the department expressed concerns over huge cracks and leaking roofs in some of the station’s houses which pose danger to the occupants.

The station is one of the oldest in the region dated to the coming of the first white District Commissioner (DC), Francis Hall who died in 1901.

The notice indicated that some houses especially those occupied by the officers are roofed with aged iron sheets causing leakages when it rains while others have huge wall cracks which can trigger collapse of the houses.

Murang’a County Chief Health Officer, Joseph Mbai confirmed issuance of the notice saying some police houses are not occupied owing to their pathetic state after trees fell on them a couple of years ago.

Murang’a East OCPD, Johnstone Limo confirmed receiving the notice, saying Bills of Quantities (BQs) have been prepared and forwarded to the authorities for consideration.

He said they are waiting for funds to enable them do renovations before the lapse of the notice time.
