The new Nakuru East Deputy County Commissioner Johnson Mwirigi on Thursday assumed office.
Speaking during handing over ceremony, he said that he is up to the task of improving security in Nakuru East Sub County that is characterized by the outlawed Confirm group as well as illegal drugs and illicit brew dens.
The DCC also stating that he will work closely with chiefs and other administrators in addressing the issue of street families which has been a menace in the Nakuru CBD.
“I am up to the task and we shall work closely with administrators including chiefs to ensure Nakuru East Sub County is secure” said DCC Mwirigi.
His predecessor Herman Shambi who is headed to Homabay as acting County Commissioner faulted residents for failing to share exclusive information about illegal gangs hiding heads as street urchins.
Shambi said that despite the challenge they had already managed to interrupt operations and growth of the illegal ‘confirm’ group which has been hiding in town as street urchins.
“If the public do not give information then they make our operation difficult. But I must say we are on top the issues in Nakuru East and as we talk now we have managed to address the menace of ‘confirm’ and illicit brew” said Shambi.
