Gachagua, Karua to Get Additional Security After Running Mate Nominations

Following the nomination of Rigathi Gachagua as running mate for DP William Ruto, Kenya Kwanza presidential flag bearer and Martha Karua as running mate for the the ODM leader, Raila Odinga presidential bid, therefore, they have been accorded additional security. On that matter, according to the National Police Service requirements, both Gachagua and his Azimio coalition counterpart Ms. Karua are eligible for additional security. However, they must formally apply for the same via their parties.

Equally, according to the National Police Service (NPS)’s Election Security Manual, all election stakeholders including candidates are eligible for security by the police. Therefore, their deployment process involves the determination of the number of police officers and resources that should be deployed, time and place.

For that matter, both Mr. Gachagua and Ms. Karua should make a formal request for their specific needs and assessment and for purpose security provision. As a matter of fact, a police land rover from Kutus police station was seen yesterday driving into the Ms Karua's Kutus home just after she was unveiled as Raila's running mate at Kenyatta International Conference Centre (KICC) grounds.
