Kenya’s National Police Service on Wednesday, February 23, 2022, commissioned an Operation Centre in Nairobi for the surveillance of the Nairobi-Mombasa railway line and received vehicles donated by the Chinese Government.
The centre which is installed with CCTV cameras will be key in monitoring activities along the corridor, and disseminating information to Police Officers on the ground for quick response.
The commissioning was presided over by the Deputy Inspector General-Kenya Police Service Mr Edward Mbugua who termed the centre as a ‘major boost in the fight against vandalism’, a vice that has continuously affected key infrastructure development projects.
While handing over the vehicles to NPS, Mr Zhou Pingjian, Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China to Kenya, thanked the National Police Service for the continued cooperation and provision of security to the various construction sites.
The DIG-KPS thanked the Chinese Government for the donation of motor vehicles to the Service, adding that they will greatly enhance NPS mobility.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
