THE Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo yesterday said police are ready to provide adequate security during and after the March 4 elections. He said police have been deployed to various parts especially violence hotspots.
Kimaiyo said he has given instructions to his deputies Samuel Arachi who heads the provincial administration, Grace Kaindi of regular police and director of criminal investigations Ndegwa Muhoro to ensure that the elections are violence free. The three were sworn in on Wednesday.
Speaking to the Star after Kenya Human Rights Commission published a report indicating that there was a re-emergence of militias in Nairobi, Kisumu, Nakuru and Central, he said his team have taken necessary steps to contain the gangs.
"Kenyans should not worry in any way that violence will erupt after the polls because we have put in measures to contain any eventuality," Kimaiyo said.
