Residents of Egetonto location in Gucha Sub County, Kisii are a happy lot after the government launched a new police post in the area.
The modern police post sponsored by the National Government Constituency Development Fund (NG-CDF) was unveiled in a colorful event that was presided over by Kisii County Commissioner Tom Anjere and area MP Alfah Miruka,
The CC, while presiding over the occasion, said the new post would enable the security team to deliver efficient services to all members of the public in a conducive, safe and accessible environment.
Anjere noted that the county is reporting high cases of defilement, but assured the public that with proper security strategies in place plus good will from the area political leaders and community policing, the cases will be managed.
As far as the 100 per cent transition is concerned, the CC noted the county has registered an impressive progress and urged parents, guardians and teachers to co-operate with the administrative officials to devise strategies of achieving the transition rates.
In addition, he decried some parents’ attitude and poverty saying they have been the major hindrances to the transition of students in secondary schools.
While making his remarks, Miruka said the post was constructed following consultations between the local community members, the national government and his office.
The lawmaker pledged to allocate more funds towards furnishing the new post, purchasing a vehicle and constructing a perimeter wall around it in an effort to create decent environments for the officers to work effectively.
He noted his development record cuts across all sectors including the construction of government offices for local administrators and the police as well as improving road networks, rural electrification, lighting markets, and the ongoing construction of school projects within the constituency.
The residents lauded the efforts of the national government and local leaders in building the police post and other administrative offices to ensure that security and administration officers work efficiently and locals can receive quality government services.
