President Uhuru Kenyatta yesterday said the Government will beef up security in the country adding that there will be no lapse in security after the death of Internal Security CS Joseph Nkaissery.
Speaking in Baringo yesterday, the President said security forces will step up measures to protect Kenyans in memory of the late CS. He warned those bent on causing chaos thinking that there was a vacuum at the security docket following the death of Nkaissery that they would be dealt with in accordance with the law.
“I want to assure the people of Baringo and all Kenyans that we will continue ensuring that security is strengthened. Those who think they can get an opportunity to harm Kenyans should know that there will be no chance for them,” said Uhuru when he addressed rallies at Kabartonjo and Marigat, Baringo County in the company of Deputy President William Ruto.
Earlier, President Kenyatta and the Deputy President joined faithful for a service at the Kabartonjo African Inland Church (AIC) in Baringo County. Uhuru urged Christians to continue praying for peace especially now that the country was preparing for the August General Election. He urged religious leaders to continue to preach the virtues of peace, love, selflessness and tolerance, which Christ epitomises.
“All of us should know that peace, love and unity remain key to the development of our country,” said Uhuru. Baringo North MP William Cheptumo said residents of the county were firmly behind the Jubilee.
“Just like the way our people supported you in 2013, I want to assure President Kenyatta that this time round the numbers will be much more for Jubilee,” said Cheptumo.
