Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i is scheduled to visit Nakuru County today amid worries about the escalating levels of insecurity brought on by criminal gangs.

Dr. Matiang’i will preside over a high-level meeting with the security team for the area to analyze recent occurrences and develop plans to stop new threats.

Rift Valley Regional Commissioner Mohamed Maalim told reporters on Tuesday that a reorganization is probably going to be ordered during the visit.

According to Mr. Maalim, the modifications are intended to simplify regional security agencies and guarantee that national goals are met.

He made a suggestion that cops who promote criminal activity by working with offenders or providing them with protection may be fired.

Dr. Matiang’i will make any modifications or introduce additional measures known when he visits, according to Mr. Maalim.

“In our strategy, we are going to undertake major changes in the security docket, including taking action on errant officers and if need be make the necessary recommendations to the inspector-general of police,” said Mr Maalim. 

This came after the gruesome killings of three women in Bahati’s Mawanga estate who police believe were raped beforehand. The killers were allegedly feared Confirm gang members.

128 people who were allegedly gang members were detained as a result of a security operation that was authorized in the region.

In addition, they seized 10 unclaimed motorcycles thought to have been utilized by the group for their illicit acts, as well as Army and National Youth Service uniforms.
