Cases of insecurity have declined greatly at the Kwa Kathoka area, Makueni Sub-county Deputy County Commissioner (DCC), Florence Obunga has said.
Obunga attributed this improved security to increase of police patrols and construction of a police post in the area.
The DCC was speaking at Kambi Mawe Boys High School on Saturday during Madaraka Day Celebrations, urged members of the public to volunteer information that would help the security agents deal with disgruntled elements in the society.
On loans, Obunga cautioned the youth against taking the loans from the various mobile lending platforms, saying they risked being listed with CRB, which in turn would affect their chances of getting jobs in future.
In another development, the DCC warned head teachers against picking children, especially those from lower classes at 5am in the morning, saying they risked prosecution.
She noted that children needed ample time to sleep and get enough rest for good performance in class.
