The Government of Kenya through the Ministry of Interior has announced plans to set up a police station at Nairobi County’s City Hall.
Interior CS Fred Matiang’i and Inspector General Hillary Mutyambai said the station will be of much help in controlling frequent chaos witnessed at the county establishment.
CS Matiangi insisted that the post will also deal with rogue individuals within City Hall threatening security.
“We will have a police post fully run by officers here to ensure that the county is safe from people threatening security,” the CS said.
On Tuesday, July 28, chaos ensued at City Hall after a section of Nairobi MCAs attempted to storm Speaker Beatrice Elachi’s office to eject her.
The MCAs wanted to table a motion of impeachment against the speaker saying they had collected 62 signatures.
However, they encountered police officers who repulsed them injuring a number of MCAs among them Mlango Kubwa MCA Mutheu Musyimi.
Mutheu sustained hand, and back injuries and was admitted to the Nairobi Hospital.
On Monday, July 27, Elachi accused the Nairobi governor of being behind the push to have her removed.
She noted that the MCAs allied to Sonko were unhappy with National Metropolitan Service (NMS) efforts at sealing all loopholes in the county.
