Matiang’i full of praise for women who volunteered to feed officers at a roadblock

By Vincent Kejitan | May 2nd 2020

Interior CS Fred Matiang’i on Friday lauded three women who went out of their way to feed police officers manning a roadblock at the Tala checkpoint.

The story of the three women led by Priscilla Kioko was widely shared on social media, catching the attention of the CS who paid them an impromptu visit.

Matiang’i utilised his Labour Day by visiting officers at various checkpoints and recognised the efforts of the women describing it as the true Kenyan spirit.

“Had the pleasure to meet the gracious ladies who are voluntarily supporting our officers at the Tala checkpoint. On behalf of President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Government, I thank them.

“They exemplify Kenya's spirit and the much-needed synergy between citizens and security organs,” said the CS.

On their part, the women said they were touched by the efforts of the officers and empathized with their situation since they worked for long hours and there were no shops near the roadblock.

The CS commended the officers for their dedication, asking them to continue giving their best.

Matiang’i also condoled with the families of seven officers who were swept away by flash floods in Baringo County.

Saddened to learn of the demise of seven of our gallant police officers who were part of a group whose vehicle was swept away by flash floods at Chemoe, Baringo County in the course of their service.

“My condolences and prayers to their families and colleagues,” he wrote.
