Security agents in Kimilili district have been urged to curb criminal activities in Kimilili town and its environs to provide an enabling environment for business ventures among other development activities.

In an exclusive interview with West Fm, the Kimilili township ward civic leader Benjamin Wekesa disclosed that even though police have been able to contain criminal activities in the region, more effort is needed to deal with petty criminal activities.

Mr. Wekesa revealed that incidents of burglary in Kimilili town and neighboring villages are on the increase while appealing to the police officers to remain vigilant and avert the situation.

He said the last two months incidents of robbery with violence have reduced owing to the spirited efforts by the chairman of the district security committee who is also the area DC Joseph Lewa Lewa and the Officer Commanding Kimilili police station Maurice Oyolo.

The civic leader urged residents of Kimilili district to embrace community policing by giving correct information concerning criminals to security agents so that necessary security measures can be taken.

He said police alone cannot win the war against crime insisting that such information could go a long way to assist police to nub criminals. ‘’They know these people and they should voluntarily offer information without fear to the police because such information is normally treated confidentially by the security agents,’’ he said.

 The New Ford Kenya civic leader challenged women and the youth in the district to form registered groups and seek funding from the women and youth enterprise funds respectively to establish business ventures without relying on white collar jobs which he termed us competitive.

He said Kimilili has great potential in business and agricultural activities while pointing out that the youth who are majorly affected by high levels of unemployment should capitalize on that to empower themselves through legal business engagements.

Wekesa also appealed to parents to use available institutions to further the education of their children especially in the technical field and shun the norm of education ending at Form four.

‘’The world today is very competitive and if we don’t further the education of our children, as parents we shall be failing,’’ he said.

In politics, he said the only way the youth can stop being used by politicians to achieve their own selfish gains is through expanding their own economic power. ‘’ The youth are vulnerable of being misused unless they wake up and empower themselves economically,’’ Cllr. Wekesa pointed out.
