In a bold move aimed at curbing the escalating security crisis in Isebaniah town, the Cabinet Secretary of Interior, Professor Kindiki, has implemented urgent reforms and ordered the immediate withdrawal of underperforming officers.
The government’s decisive actions come in response to the recent surge in violence, loss of lives, and rampant robbery that has plagued the border town.
Recognizing the failures of the security agencies in Isebaniah, Professor Kindiki emphasized that officers deployed to protect citizens and their businesses had neglected their mandated duties, causing distress and concern among the local community.

Addressing concerns about officers who have overstayed in Isebaniah without effectively addressing security challenges, Professor Kindiki emphasized that they would be required to provide explanations for their negligence.
The government’s agenda moving forward will be to dismiss non-performing officers permanently, without transferring their problems elsewhere.
This firm stance reflects the commitment to safeguarding the interests and well-being of Kenyan citizens.
