By Cyrus Ombati | May 1st 2020
Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang'i and Police boss Hillary Mutyambai (inset) Friday visited Koma and Athi River multi-agency road blocks in Machakos County and others in Isinya, Kiserian and Kibiko in Kajiado County.
The officials wanted to see how effective the sites are in curbing the spread of the coronavirus disease.
During the visit at Koma road block, the CS met and thanked Ms. Priscilla Kioko, a lawyer and a hotel operator in Tala town who had shown appreciation by providing food to the officers manning Koma road block for the last three weeks.
“We appreciate their efforts and declare we are human. Let us keep up,” he said.
Mutyambai said this is a good gesture and sign of community policing where members of the public work closely with the police in the fight against crime in the society.
Matiang’i thanked all government agencies deployed to control movement as an effort to help in the fight against the spread of Covid-19.
He urged them to remain firm in enforcing government directives of curfew from 7:00pm to 5:00am and not to allow unauthorized movement in and out of the Nairobi Metropolitan areas.
During the visits, the CS was met by Machakos and Kajiado County security teams.
