AP officers in Matungu Sub-County transferred

Following the recent killing, Administration Police officers and the Officer Commanding Station (OCS) in the tension filled area, were on Monday transferred.

The move came after residents of the area complained of laziness of the officers in dealing with the killers.

Area MP Justus Murunga and Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya had demanded the immediate relocation of all police officers based at Ejinja AP camp in Matungu.

The decision to move the officers is seen as a way to improve security in the region.

County Police Commander Wilkister Vera assured the locals that patrols in the night would be intensified to deal with the killer group.
