Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has signed the Private Security Industry Regulation Bill into law. 

The law provides a framework for cooperation between private security companies, and the national security organs. It also regulates the private security services industry in accordance with the values and principles of the constitution.

The law calls for the registration of all security firms, training of its personnel, and proper remuneration for all private security guards.

It will also provide guidelines for foreign ownership, and control of businesses operating as security service providers.

The new law will also provide for the establishment of the Private Security Regulatory Authority, with its headquarters in Nairobi.

The authority shall ensure reasonable access of its services in all parts of the country, so far as it is appropriate to do so, having regard for the nature of the service.

The body will set standards, create an enforcing mechanism, improve personnel welfare, and offer redress from unscrupulous players.

The Authority shall be governed by a board consisting of a chairperson appointed by the President.

Uhuru also signed the Political Parties Amendment Act 2016.

Also present at the signing were the Speaker of the National Assembly Justin Muturi, Attorney General Githu Muigai, Majority leader in Parliament Aden Duale, and Clerk to the National Assembly Justin Bundi.
