Security Industry Associations have hailed the move by the National Assembly to annul the new stringent private security licensing regulations.
The regulations were annulled yesterday by National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi.
In a statement The Joint Associations Of Security Guards stated that they seek to engage the government and willing stakeholders in building and strengthening the industry.
Consequently, the association has also taken steps towards advising their members towards the new developments.
Previously the private security industry associations had protested the regulations stating that if implemented, over 500,000 security guards risk losing their jobs.
The regulations whose implementation deadline was January required capacity training of all security guards companies and employees.
