Kitengela Town resident and former Kajiado East Parliamentary aspirant Bob Njagi has called for the formation of a joint task force that will involve Kitengela Ward representatives and Oloosirkon/Sholinke ward to see to it the construction of a new and modern police station so as to security the services to the people of Kitengela.
Njagi who spoke to the KitengelaBiznet on the sidelines of the Budget and appropriations Public Participation forum at MPE Guest House in Kitengela early today said that the state of the police station is poor and its time that action must be taken and resources found to construct a new station with modern facilities.
“Ever since I was a small teenager over 27 years ago, the Kitengela Police station has always remained as its it today with just a small office e and two small cells, but its high time we have allocated resources to ensure that the police station is just as it and surely we need to create room of the expansion of the station” Njagi said.
Njagi also said that if the police station remains the way it is the huge population growth that has been witnessed in Kitengela the station is small and it cannot accommodate the security needs of Kitengela Town let alone properly accommodate the same police officers working at the station.
“If it is possible we would like with the construction of a modern police station that will be well equipped to handle security challenges that arise we should also build modern houses for the police officers to stay in” Bob said.
Njagi called upon all stake holders in Kitengela to put their best efforts to ensure that it becomes a reality.
“I have engaged a group calling itself the Kitengela Central Business Association to see to it that Kitengela police station is modernized and if we have agreed that we shall pull resources from the county Government headed by Governor Joseph Ole Lenku, the area MP Peris Tobiko whom we recognize and all the MCA’s to see to it that we have a police station with modern facilities so as to increase the security of Kitengela Town in General.
