The president of Kenya, honourable Uhuru Kenyatta was today at the Traffic Police Training Centre which is located in Ngong, Kajiado County. Reports indicate that he was presiding over the destruction of illegal guns that had been collected from different parts of the country.
The exercise was successful as a total of five thousand one hundred and forty four firearms were set on fire and razed down to ashes.
Afterwards, the president as well as other leaders from the security sector including the cabinet secretary of Interior and Coordination of the National Government, Dr Fred Matiang'i addressed the police service as they pointed out important issues affecting the country.
Moreover, the president has sternly warned the leaders across the country who cause conflicts and other clan animosities and blame the Al Shabaab. He has spelled out that the government will not tolerate such behaviors and victims will be held responsible accordingly.
Kenyans have been left talking over the president's directive. Many have delightfully welcomed the directive on the account that crime should be alleviated from the country.
