DCC assures residents of security during presidential polls

Makueni Deputy County Commissioner Karugu Wangombe has assured residents of security during and after the repeat presidential polls on October 26.

Wangombe said the government will protect residents and their property against any violence and destruction as the country heads to the fresh elections.

Speaking at Unoa Grounds, during Mashujaa Day celebrations, the DCC warned those hell bent on creating chaos that the government will not hesitate to take action.

At no time shall we take the safety of our people for granted. Security will always come first. Those who will breach peace will be dealt with according to the law, he said.

He said police will intensify patrols within Wote town and the outskirts to enhance security.

Wangombe called on the residents not to disrupt activities at IEBC and shun demonstrations called by NASA leaders against the electoral body.

I urge you not to take part in the demonstrations that have turned chaotic, said the DCC.

Popular business man Duncan Mwilu lauded the government for enhancing security in the town and urged residents to rally behind the government.
