The National Government has promised to provide security to more than 3,000 delegates expected at the 7th annual devolution conference that will take place in Makueni County.

Makueni County Commissioner Maalim Mohammed has given the assurance after he chaired the County Security Intelligence Committee meeting jointly with the Deputy County Commissioners (DCCs) from the nine sub-counties in his Wote Boardroom on Thursday.

“We are adequately prepared to provide enough security in the county especially in these times we have terrorists’ threats in the region. We have beefed up security besides patrols by the police,” said Maalim.

Maalim said all towns in the county will operate day and night with adherence to containment measures set up by the ministry of health.

Those in the public transport sector have also been notified to ensure that those who board the vehicles are frisked and their luggage checked before boarding.

Maalim said boda boda operators will also be issued jacket reflectors by the National Transport Safety Authority (NTSA) to enable them to ferry passengers to and fro during the conference period.

Delegates are to be fully vaccinated according to the communication of the Council of Governors (COG).

The conference will take place at Makueni Boys High School, in Makueni County from November 23 to 26.
