Speaking to the press in his office on Tuesday, Jaldesa said there have been increased cases of insecurity in most of the informal settlements in the County.

“I want to give a stern warning to gangsters terrorizing wananchi that their days are numbered and sooner or later they will be arrested and charged. They should look for an alternative job or face the bullet,” said Uasin Gishu County Commissioner.

He noted that the hotspot insecurity areas in the county include Huruma, Action, Munyaka, Kamukunji and Langas.

“We will work to ensure that cases of theft in the said areas are a thing of the past. We will add more officers to enhance security in areas where we don’t have enough to enhance security,” added Jaldesa.

The County Commissioner, however, called on residents to embrace Nyumba Kumi initiative by knowing their neighbours and in case of any suspicious strangers they should report to the nearest police station. 

This comes after Hivisasa highlighted a story by Huruma MCA Peter Chomba who decried of increased security in Huruma  Ward where a day does not pass without a person being robbed on the way or houses being broken into.
