Central Regional Commissioner Mr. Wilfred Nyagwanga has directed Nyandarua County public servants who are currently operating from Nyahururu town in Laikipia to move their offices to Ol Kalau town.
Mr. Nyagwanga while speaking at a Baraza in Kasuku trading centre Tuesday directed the County Police Commander, Critical Infrastructure Police unit CIPU (formally Administration Police) and the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) to find a place in Ol Kalau so that they can serve the residents better.
“We are looking at the current county staff establishment and feel that there is a shortage of police officers. It is only fair that these officers move here (Nyandarua County) to enhance service delivery,” he said.
He noted that the officers hosted in Nyahururu, Laikipia County in Rift Valley Region were flouting the law and needed to move to serve in accordance with the service charter that demanded they are hosted in the county of posting.
“By mid this month, the officers should join their counterparts in Ol Kalau. We have sited some land in the county headquarter where they will work from, everything is taken care of and should move from Nyahururu, Laikipia County,” he noted.
The RC, also inspected Ol Jororok Police Station that has been constructed by the area National Government Constituency Development Fund, NG-CDF to a tune of Shs.12 million.
Nyandarua North Sub County offices in Nyahururu town that have from Independence served the county are still branded as Nyandarua Headquarters, hosting scores of departments including the County Intelligence Staff.
The premise that sits on approximately three acres has about 99 percent of its occupants as being officers serving Nyandarua County.
Earlier 2019, Interior CS Dr. Fred Matiang’i directed the handing over of the Nyahururu police station from the Central Region Command to Rift valley.
