"It can no longer be business as usual and we commend the president for his decisive stand unless his predecessor never even once the insecurity ravaging the north and north east also badly hit by famine.
Cheoi said n cabinet secretaries and security chiefs being the implementing organs of the government should now move with speed and secure lives and property of impoverished residents also battling ravaging famine.

The gang is said to operate with brutal efficiency once they waylay their victim as many people scarcely notice as they go about their business, going around with metal bars they sue to choke their Those who notice prefer to mind their business victim before robbing which is now fast making Nairobi the worst city to work in if this trend is not checked.
The said muggers have been behind a wave of robberies uprooting heavy manholes from sewer and drainage water while taking advantage of congested street to pickpocket especially women purses, The Chairman the NGO Council and Members will work withe the Goverment for the welfare of the citizens, he urged all Kenyans to volunteer informations that will help the Government enhance peace and security in the country.
