Residents of Sindo and Wadian’ga in Suba South Sub County have been assured of tight security a head of Christmas celebrations.
The outgoing Homa-Bay County Commissioner (CC), Harman Shambi said that security personnel have been mobilised to ensure that the residents who have been leaving in fear of gang attacks in the area discharged their daily duties without tension.
Shambi further called on the residents to work closely with security personnel in exposing gangsters amidst them to police officers for appropriate action.
The administrator who has been transferred to Isiolo County in the same capacity after serving in Homa bay County for six months was affected in the ongoing changes done by the Ministry Of Interior and Coordination of National Government.
He was posted in Homa-Bay County in July, 2019 and took over from Irungu Macharia who was moved to Lamu County after serving in Homa-Bay County for nearly a year.
Before he was posted as the Homa-Bay County Commissioner, Shambi was the Nakuru East Deputy County Commissioner (DCC).
Shambi who has been replaced by Nyeri County Commissioner, David Kipkemei, dispelled rumours that he has been moved from Homa-Bay due to his firm stand on war against corruption and other illegal practices.
Speaking during the official handing over ceremony in his office witnessed by departmental heads, Shambi termed the transfer as a normal government exercise to public servants and it should not be politicised at any cost.
The outgoing administrator called on the public servants, civil organisations and members of the public to continue with the spirit of team work as the new commissioner comes in to ensure effective service delivery.
The CC further challenged his successor to continue with war on graft, production of illicit brews, teenage pregnancies and marriages which are the main challenges in the county.
