Arrests following killings

Police  in Kakamega have arrested two suspects while four others are being interrogated following a spate of killings in  Matungu Sub County.

According  to the area County Commissioner (CC), Abdulrizak  Jaldesa the four were being grilled for the purpose of

establishing if they were linked to the crimes as the other two await arraignment in court.

Jaldesa  and  the Kakamega  Governor, Wycliffe Oparanya implored the area residents to maintain peace after 10 people  were  killed by gangsters in Matungu constituency about a month ago.

The  duo  who  were  speaking at Huduma Centre in Kakamega stressed  that peace was a prerequisite for development in the county.

The  CC  noted that 1,060,000 people in the area had registered in the ongoing huduma namba registration since it kicked off 34 days  ago.

Jaldesa  said the registration would be extended to schools to carter for students who were not registered while at home for holidays.

He  expressed  optimism that the county’s target of 2.1 million people would be realised as the governor called on the residents to register since this would assist the nation in planning for its people.

“Just  like I have managed  to register  today, I would like  to advise  all Kakamega  residents  to show up for the

registration as  it will enable  every  single individual  to have access to government services and  it  will  allow  us  to plan  on development issues using the statistics,” said the governor.
