The transport sector is an important part of our economy as it enables us to access most parts of the country and also obtain important resources. However, it is quite unbelievable that most citizens are misusing and vandalizing the infrastructure including roads. This has left many netizens talking especially after the recent claims that some individuals are throwing stones at the standard railway gauge train.
According to Kenyan News, the police were forced to deploy units drawn from, National Government Administration Offices, National Intelligence Service (NIS), and Railways Police to monitor such incidences. The Voi residents have been warned about engaging in such activities. An inter-agency delegation led by Sub-County Police Commander-Mombasa Terminus Stephen Munene conducted a drive in various parts of Voi to sensitize natives on the repercussions of destroying the train.
The team also reminded the residents of the rules and regulations governing railway lines across the country and penalties for violating them. The team held public barazas in Birikani location and Maungu village and engaged the public on rules and regulations governing the railway line. The members of the public were further warned against destroying, stealing railways' property, illegal grazing, and trespassing into the railway line," National Police Service stated.
