"Your days are numbered" - Nyagwanga warns Kiambu criminal gangs

Central Regional Commissioner Wilfred Nyagwanga has sent a stern warning to criminal gangs operating within Kiambu that their days were numbered.

While speaking in Nyacaba area within Juja sub-County, the Nyagwanga particularly warned a gang calling itself 'Gaza' that was terrorising area residents that security agents would deal with its members ruthlessly and without mercy. He also directed security apparatus from Juja sub-county to stem out indiscriminate sale and consumption of alcohol and bhang in the area.

"The government through Kazi Mtaani has recruited around 22,000 young Kenyans to cushion them from unemployment. I don't understand why the so called Gaza don't go for such opportunities and instead engage in criminal activities. We shall deal with them ruthlessly in accordance with the law," said Nyagwanga.

He added that the establishment of Witeithie Division and the placement of the Assistant County Commissioner (ACC) would bring all Government services closer to the people and propel development projects in the area. 

Nyagwanga was speaking when introducing George Maina as the pioneer ACC for the new Witeithie Division.

Kiambu County Commissioner (CC) Wilson Wanyange directed NEMA to conduct a serious audit on quarry operators in the area and root out all those who disregarded the laid down protocols to operate thus endangering people's lives and polluting the environment. He cited recent incidents where several people have lost lives out of negligence by the operators.

Central Region Police Commander Patrick Lumumba said that a divisional police headquarters would be established in the area with a full fledged police station to boost security. 
Area MCA Julius Macharia Taki described these quarries as death traps. 

Among those present included area criminal investigation Chief Jeremiah Ikao and Juja Sub-County DCC Charles Murithii among others.
