Interior Principal Secretary, Karanja Kibicho

KISII, Kenya, September 24, 2020 – Interior Principal Secretary, Karanja Kibicho says a security protocol tailored to avert pre or post-2022 general election is almost complete.

The PS regretted the resurgence of reckless rhetoric within the political class saying it the potential to trigger ethnic and political violence across the country.

He made the disclosure in Kisii where he was a tour to assess the county’s preparedness to host this year’s Mashujaa Day celebrations.

He urged local leaders to desist from protecting criminal elements by bailing them out of police nets and instead cooperate with the national government to curb criminal activities. On drug abuse and illicit brews, the PS called for an intensified campaign to eradicate the menace adding that past efforts on the same were wanting.

He said many more development activities will be witnessed in the county in the coming days in readiness for the national event.

Kibicho was upbeat on the country’s uptake of a myriad development programme under the leadership of  President Uhuru Kenyatta including ICT and Huduma Bamba, which critics failed to appreciate.

Governor James Ongwae applauded President Kenyatta for reconsidering to host the next national Mashujaa celebration in the county after Covid-19 spike halted the planned Madaraka Day last June.

Ongwae commended the national government for the development projects in the county and petitioned the president to intervene on the Suneka Airstrip whose completion has drugged for months
