Gov’t To Construct Security Wall In Wajir
Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery says the move by the government is aimed at addressing the serious security challenges the country is facing.
Nkaissery says that the wall will ensure that the movement of Somali nationals to the country will be limited since there will be only one entry.
The security boss, who was speaking during the handing over of office to his successor Elijah Memusi as the Kajiado Central Member of Parliament, said that the government is taking security issues seriously and cannot continue sitting down as people die.
He noted that the wall will ensure that movement in and out of the country is monitored closely by security agents in order to prevent criminals or persons with intent of committing crime from getting into the country.
He tough speaking CS condemned Mandera Governor Ali Roba for allegedly misleading Kenyans by saying that his life was in danger.
Nkaissery said that the Governor’s convoy attack was an isolated case of banditry and must not be used to mislead Kenyans.
He further warned Senator Billow Kerrow of Mandera against using local and international media to mislead Kenyans by accusing the government of laxity.
Nkaissery asked the Senator to stop taking advantage of his parliamentary privileges to point accusing fingers to the government and stop using county commissioners as excuses for the Governor’s attack.
"One very important message I want to send is that Ali Roba and Billow Kerrow should know, and must know, that all County Commissioners are direct personal representative to the President at the county level," said Nkaiserry.
He also said nothing will move county commissioners in their counties not even demonstrations.
The CS added that due to the increased security threats in the country, police officers will be recruited in April to cater for the deficit in the number of police officers in the country.
