Huruma Police Officers Traverse Area Preaching Peace

Police officers attached to the Huruma Police Station over the weekend preached peace to the area residents ahead of the August 9 General Elections.

The officers led by the Huruma OCS Robert Mugo, traversed the entire Huruma and Mathare areas in their police vans preaching peace.

Mugo urged the youth to shun being used by politicians to propagate hate and violence within their communities.

“We have decided as police officers to put down our guns and teargas canisters and instead preach peace to the community members. We should attend the rallies yes but then again after the rallies, we should go straight home,” said Mugo.

“The youth should refrain from being used negatively by politicians. This is the time to say no to violence and hate. It is pleasant and also good for people to live peacefully” he said.

The officers however stated that they will not abandon their roles by arresting individuals found on the wrong side of the law.

Naboth Absalom a resident of Huruma appreciated the efforts by police officers terming the event as timely and critical during this electioneering period.

“Peace is very critical and needed for the development of the nation and the police play a critical role in the maintenance of law and order in the nation,” said Absalom.

After the peace campaigns the officers held a Kamukunji at the Huruma Police Station where citizens aired their concerns with the security agents.
