Nairobi — As the country heightens the war against the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Police Service continues to receive support from various stakeholders, in order to ensure officers are not exposed to infections.
The latest support came from the National Gun Owners Association (NGAO) which has partnered with the Ministry of Health to train nearly 2,000 police officers on measures they should deploy while executing their duties, particularly in the hotspot areas.
He was speaking at Pangani Police Station, where he handed over a sanitization booth donated by the association members- in honour of the late Captain Akber Sumra, a pilot who died in a plane crash in Maasai Mara.
The sanitization booth was unveiled by Deputy Inspector General of Police Edward Mbugua- who has called on other members of the public to support the police service.
Among the measures in place to combat the infections is a dusk to dawn curfew imposed by President Uhuru Kenyatta, countrywide, and cessation of movement in and out of Eastleigh, a densely populated suburb in Nairobi, Mombasa's Old Town area and Mandera in northern Kenya that borders with Somalia.
