President Uhuru Kenyatta has pledged to invest more in the National Police Service to ensure smoother operations.
Speaking on Sunday when he officially opened the Ruiru General Service Unit (GSU) Chapel in Kiambu County, Uhuru said that his government has good plans for the police. He noted that he will allocate more resources to the police with the aim of making them perform better at the end of the day.
“The Government will continue to invest in the National Police Service (NPS) to enable it carry out its mandate effectively, President Uhuru Kenyatta has said,” State House tweeted.
He also said that the construction of the chapel is worth celebrating. The head of state added that the church construction shows that the police recognize the role of God in our daily lives.
“Building this chapel is a great achievement. It is also an honour in recognizing that there is one who is greater than all of us, who protects us as we carry out our duties and serve our nation,” President Kenyatta said.
On his part, Interior CS Fred Matiangi said that Uhuru has proven beyond doubt that he wants to transform the security sector of the country. He also said that Kenya is safe because of the reforms made by the government.
“I am aware of the resources you have spent in addressing the spiritual needs of our officers and our people within the framework of the security sector,” CS Matiangi said.
