Social Networks

The Kenya Police Service has established a new unit to help preserve the highways and enforce traffic in the country. The officers will be attached to Kenya National Highways Authority.

In a speech read on behalf of the Deputy Inspector General of the Kenya Police Service Mr. Edward N. Mbugua, MBS, OGW, ndc (K) by the Coast Region Police Commander Mr. Noah Mwivanda, OGW –AIG  during the official opening of an induction training for officers attached to Kenya National Highways Authority, at Mombasa Beach hotel on Monday 9th April, 2018,  the DIG-KPS said that globalization has transformed the world’s economy and as a result, it has tremendously increased industry’s demand for the rapid and timely delivery of goods.

He was optimistic that Kenya’s industry has risen to the challenges and opportunities that have been occasioned by globalization in recent years.

He also noted that, the road transport sector for example, moves a large amount of cargo in Kenya and along the Northern Corridor and it is therefore necessary to ensure the regulations and policies regarding road asset management are fully enforced. “This will facilitate seamless movement of goods within the region and eliminate unnecessary delays caused by noncompliance to the regulations”.

“When transport systems are efficient they provide economic and social opportunities and benefits that result in positive multiplier effect such as better accessibility to markets, employment and additional investments”, the DIG-KPS said.

He assured all the stakeholders that the newly formed Unit is determined to play its part by strictly enforcing all rules and regulations, at all times and in all places within the Republic.
