Hours after Orange Democratic Movement leader Raila Odinga broke his silence talking on the recent wave of kidnappings against women and children, police IG Hillary Mutyambai has responded.
The police Inspector General noted that security had been beefed across the Country, to curb the surging cases of child kidnapping and trafficking currently on the rise.
The IG was speaking earlier today while engaging the public on Twitter, where he further advised the parents to first take care of their children.
Mutyambai also advised the parents to teach their children the basic security skills and measures before providing emergency contacts through which one could reach out to the police.
“For any suspicious characters and activities contact police hotlines 112,911 or 999, and the DCI 0800722203,” he wrote.
Responding to the rise in crimes within the City, Mutyambai also stated that officers had also been planted at the crime prone spots insisting that community policing still had a bigger part to play in the process.
He categorically stated that anti mugging team had been planted all over the city to help in reducing the recent rise in the number of muggers within the City.
His sentiments comes just shortly after the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga issued a terse statement on the recent increase in cases of child and women kidnappings and subsequent murders.
This is after two serial killers confessed of abducting and killing children after their kin failed to raise the amount of ransom required.
The two Wanjalas, Masten Wanjala Milimu was arrested in Nairobi and has since confessed to kidnapping and killing 13 minors, and Evans Juma Wanjala also in custody for defiling and killing 5 girls between 2019 and 2021.
