The Government of Kenya has deployed two hundred police bosses to the Rift Valley region and will be under a new title of the Assistant County Commissioners, to collaborate with the Rift Valley Regional Commissioner George Natembeya as the country gears to head to the next general elections which is months away from being conducted.
The contingent of the 200 new bosses were recruited following the creation of new administrative units in the region and will be aimed at improving sanity in the region as the country heads to the electioneering period and their first assignment will be to spearhead the registration of the National IDs and mobilizing voters to get registered.
"A lot of work needs to be done under the Rapid Results Initiative (RRI). We are approaching a General Election and they will be required to organise peace meetings and coordinate government functions," Natembeya stated.
Natembeya pointed an accusing finger at the Chiefs in the region for undermining the government's push to reach out to most residents but was confident that the new bosses who are made of fresh graduates will ease this burden.
The Regional Commissioner urged the new bosses to be assertive and firm and ensure that government programs are running and they should be vocal in pushing contractors to deliver state projects.
