Chomba says a day does not pass without a person being robbed on the way or houses being broken into.

Speaking to Hivisasa at the Uasin Gishu County Assembly buildings on Monday, the Ward Rep named West Indies, Shauri Yako, Mwenderi, Huruma, Kingongo, Mwanzo, and Beckon estates as areas within the ward that have been experiencing a wave of insecurity.

"People don’t sleep and if they sleep, they do so in shifts while others provide security,” said the MCA who also called for the increased police patrols in the area.

He said the sale of illicit brew and bhang within the area is the cause of the insecurity.

Chomba also claimed that there is a gang of 20 people which breaks into people’s houses, steals electronics and thereafter rapes women and their daughters before leaving.

“I call upon the County Commissioner to intervene by at least constructing one police station at Mwenderi. Despite the ward being the most populated in Eldoret, it does not have a single police station,” he said.

According to the MCA, they had given a proposal to the former County commissioner Abdi Hassan and gave out a one-acre piece of land for construction of a police station but nothing was done.
