Nairobi residents urged to embrace 'Nyumba Kumi'

06 February 2014, 11:22

Nairobi - Nairobi residents have been urged to embrace the 'Nyumba Kumi' security initiative in a bid to combat the surging cases of crime in the city.

Joseph Kaguthi, the chairperson of the Nyumba Kumi initiative, said they will work with civil society groups, village elders and other unions to ensure that the initiative was successful.

“Kwa viongozi ambao wamechaguliwa, wazee wa kijiji ni wao wanatatua matatizo yao ndio tunakuja kueleza ili iwekwe nguvu. Kunavyo vitu ambavyo tunakuja kupendekeza ili tuone iwapo wataichukua ili tuweze kusaidia taifa letu (Elected leaders and village elders who handle the residents’ concerns, we have a number of proposal that we are coming to implement so that we get to see whether we can help our nation,” said Kaguthi while in a meeting chaired by Nairobi Governor, Dr Evan Kidero.

Kidero, who also spoke on the same matter, added that he was going to support the initiative fully.

“Community policing will go along way because it pleases the role of security officers or the responsibility of officers by placing it on the citizens’ arms and it become not only your keeper but also your neighbour’s keeper. So, the role that Chairman Kaguthi and his team are performing is very important and is something that we would like to embrace,” added Dr. Kidero.
