Mine-resistant armoured vehicles deployed to North Eastern

President Uhuru Kenyatta hands over 500 new vehicles to police service

About 25 mine-resistant armoured personnel carriers have been deployed to the volatile Coastal and North Eastern regions.
This was revealed by President Uhuru Kenyatta today as he delivered 500 new vehicles to the National Police Service.
The President, who handed over the vehicles at Uhuru Park said this would enhance mobility and welfare for security officers in line with the Jubilee manifesto.
Noting that lack of transport had hampered the effectiveness of the police, the President said the government was committed to bridge the gap as well as improve the general welfare of police.
“In 2013, the National Police Service had in its strength a paltry 3,155 vehicles nationwide, most of which were in disrepair. The total number of vehicles of different types in use by the police now stands at 5,875,” he explained.
