Kenyan police have reported a surge in the cases of vandalism, especially of critical infrastructure.
Incidences where criminals target key installations for their own selfish ends are reported routinely.
These acts include vandalizing of rail, blowing up of communication antennas and destruction and theft of power transformers.
Worse, the net loss is borne by the innocent taxpayers who are further victimized by the lack of key services.
“These criminal acts ought to stop. Stealing public assets is stealing from ourselves,” said the police.
The public is advised to be on the lookout and share information with police and other security agencies to tackle this unbecoming menace.
They have further been urged to safeguard public property.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
