The security situation in Uasin Gishu County has improved by 90 percent, thanks to the efforts of the security officers and residents in general who gave them information.
According to Uasin Gishu County Commander Benjamin Mwanthi, police take swift action whenever a case is reported.
“Various crimes in the CBD of Eldoret town and its outskirts have reduced completely following intensified patrols by the security officers who as well respond swiftly upon a public tip-off whenever they observe suspected criminal incidents,” he said.
Mwanthi applauded the police and the members members of the public for their commendable job to ensure Eldoret is secure.
“Security in Eldoret has improved, we are 90 percent safe because of the members of the public working together with our police officers by giving information,” he said.
“But we have other challenges that have begun to emerge, suspected criminals have devised new ways like waiting for a person to get out from a bar or financial institution and telling them we want to pray for you, you have these problems and in the process a person is lured aside and finally gets robbed,” explained Mwanthi.
The police commander urged members of the public to report to police any insecurity incident so that police may move with speed to arrest the situation.
