Homa Bay County Commissioner Moses Lilan (pictured) has now come up a with new strategy of forming new Nyumba Kumi officials to reduce crime in the Sub- county.

Lilan issued the order during this year's Mashujaa Day celebrations in Ndhiwa town where he said time had come for security officials and area residents to put in place new modalities of curbing crime.

Lilan said they are going to form the new Nyumba Kumi groups beginning Monday next week.

The County Commissioner argued that people who commit crime in Ndhiwa are residents of the area hence an effective communication network between security officials and residents will help eradicate it.

"Nobody can come from another area to commit a crime here without help of residents. Let's be our neighbours' keepers to enable us live peacefully," he said.

Kanyamwa Kosewe MCA Nicholas Owaka who also attended the function said the rising insecurity required concerted efforts from all stakeholders.
