DR. MUTUA URGES KENYANS TO SUPPORT THE POLICE IN KEEPING LAW AND ORDER

Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Ezekiel Mutua has urged members of the public to take responsibility and provide information to the police in order them to effectively boost security in the country. Speaking during the Kenya Police Service New Year party at Masii Police Station in Mwala SubCounty on Sunday 12th January, 2020, Dr. Mutua reiterated that security is a collective responsibility and the public should freely interact with police, noting that security is key to the realization of national development. The CEO further proposed for a national day to be set aside to celebrate police officers for the dedicated work they do in maintaining law and order. “Police officers are very important people in our society and we should appreciate and celebrate them. I, therefore, urge the public to provide information to police officers for them to secure our country,” Dr. Mutua said. He observed that no development can be achieved in a lawless state, adding that Kenyans should support the police in keeping law and order. Dr. Mutua noted everyone should play his or her role towards security, adding that the Board will continue to work with the police in implementing its regulatory mandate as stated in the Film and Stage Plays Act Cap 222 of the Laws of Kenya. Local leaders present were the Machakos County Deputy Governor Engineer Francis Maliti, Women Representative Joyce Kamene and area MP Engineer Vincent Musyoka lauded the police for keeping law and order among others. The leaders called on the residents to embrace ‘Nyumba Kumi’ security initiative and work closely with the police to curb crime.
