The CS, while presiding over the occasion said the new building would enable the area police commander and his whole team deliver efficient government security services to all members of the pubic in a conducive, safe and accessible environment.
“We shall deploy more police officers to this area to curb incidents of insecurity, therefore, there will be a wider coverage of night patrols along the Nyamira-Bomet-Narok- Counties to ensure our people co-exist peacefully,” stated the CS.
“Cattle rustling by neighbouring Bomet and Narok counties has given Borabu residents sleepless nights and I assure you that we shall deploy more police officers to this police station to beef up night patrols so that cattle rustling and other crimes are contained once and for all,” Dr. Matiang’i said.
He revealed that the area used to report up to 90 incidents of stolen cattle per month but with proper security strategies that the department of Interior and Coordination of National Government has put in place, they have managed to contain the worrying situation and the people of Borabu can now sleep peacefully.
The Inspector General of Police, Hilary Mutyambai who was also present appealed to members of the public in the area to cooperate with the police for quality service delivery and promised that more police officers and vehicles and other tools of trade will be brought to the police station to enable them conduct night patrols efficiently.
Nyanza Regional Commissioner Mr. Magu Mutindika who accompanied the CS urged political leaders to ensure they conduct peaceful political campaigns which do not incite residents into meaningless violence.
Nyamira County Governor Amos Nyaribo applauded the efforts by the national government to build the police station and other administrative offices to ensure that security and administration officers work from decent environments where residents can receive quality government services.
