  • Date case was first documented: 26th January 2018
  • Where: Nakuru Town West
This is a case of a standard five pupil in one of the Schools in the intervention areas who was being subjected to physical and psychological violence by his parents. He had marks all over his body, a wound in his leg that was caused by beatings from his mother, his uniform was tattered and he did not have a sweater. Following consultations with his teachers, it emerged that he would always come to school late and his academic performance was poor.

What was the issue?

Nginyang’ Police Station in East Pokot Sub County, Baringo County, serve a large area. Officer Commanding Nginyang’ Police Station Ibrahim Mushima says the station receives only 400 litres of fuel for police vehicle per month to cover a vast area. Cases of defilement and other crimes are difficult to report as residents from Loruk, Tangulbei, Paka and Silale are forced to walk tens of hundreds of kilometres to access services at Nginyang’ Police Station.

Facilitating construction of a New Police Station

The Challenge

The adoption of the new constitution and the alignment of the National Police Service Act to the new dispensation warranted a shift in policing from a ‘police force’ to a ‘police service’ seeking to minimise issues of corruption, poor professionalism, poor police-community relationships, public mistrust of policing and low levels of reporting of crime by establishment of Community Policing.
