The government has recruited an additional 690 National Police Reservists (NPR) to enhance security along the Kenya-Somalia border.
Speaking during the 55th Jamhuri Day celebrations held at Garissa Primary on Wednesday, County Commissioner Joshua Chepchieng’ said affected areas will receive 30 police reservist who will be stationed within the villages.
Chepchieng’ said the reservists will work closely with chiefs, elders,
“With the 690 recruits, we believe that very soon Al-Shabaab will be a thing of the past,” Chepchieng’ said.
The county commissioner urged the citizens to cooperate and volunteer relevant information to the security agencies to enable them to effectively deal with Al-Shabaab threat once and for all.
The County Commissioner said that the census is purely meant for planning by the both the National and County government and those in doubt should be patient as from early next year all the concerns will be answered during public participation forums.
