Moreover, he suggested that the government establish positive development funds, encouraging locals to pursue alternative avenues of income and prosperity.
Kimaiyo stressed the need for the government to allocate significant resources to bolster intelligence efforts in the region.
Kimaiyo called for an investigation into the lack of political goodwill exhibited by some leaders in the region, which hampers the government's efforts to bring an end to insecurity.
The former Inspector General also underscored the crucial role played by the public in combating crime.
He encouraged citizens to actively volunteer information to the police, particularly regarding criminal activities occurring in their neighborhoods.
Kimaiyo cited the tragic incident in Shakahola, where hundreds of Kenyans lost their lives in a cult-related incident linked to controversial preacher Paul Mackenzie.
He asserted that with greater cooperation between the public and law enforcement, such tragedies could have been prevented.
