Senator Samson Cherargei has called for a complete reorganization of the country’s security sector, especially in Nairobi after his side mirror was forcefully removed from his vehicle by thugs while stuck in traffic.
In a Tuesday evening Tweet, the Nandi Senator described the city as a gangs haven and that the current security lapse reflects the situation across the country.
”A fortnight ago I lost left- side mirror of my car while stuck on traffic along Valley Road being removed forcefully by a thug. Nairobi is now a crime city and a gangs haven,” Senator Cheragei tweeted.
”The security lapse across the nation must be addressed immediately by re-organisation of security sector,” he added.
The National Police Service (NPS) yesterday announced the crime hotspots in Nairobi where gangs are said to be operating from amid the spike in insecurity.
According to a report sent to newsrooms on Monday, a survey was conducted on crime statistics within Nairobi which indicated that the gangs are targeting individuals of all ages, business premises, M-Pesa operators, and residential homes.
The NPS said spots in the city where the criminals operate include Drive-In flyover up to KCA along Thika road, KCA underpass, Total exit along Thika road, Globe Cinema roundabout and Kipande road.
Other areas are ABC Place, Kangemi along Waiyaki way, CBD (River Road, Archives, Kirinyaga road, and Fig Tree.)
