Nyagwanga said a group calling itself Gaza is terrorizing area residents warning that their days are numbered.

Speaking at Nyacaba Chief’s Camp in Juja during the installation of George Maina as the pioneer Assistant County Commissioner for the new Witeithie Division, the RC said security apparatus will deal with the illegal gangs decisively.

Nyagwanga urged the ACC, the local OCS Martin Murimi, Senior Chief Muchui Muiruri and his Assistant James Nyoike to deal with those operating alcohol dens before or after hours ruthlessly.

Nyagwanga said he is aware that some bar operators are locking people inside their premises and selling them alcohol which is in contravention of the laid down protocols.

The administrator said the establishment of Witeithie Division and the placement of the ACC will bring all Government services closer to the people.

Kiambu County Commissioner Wilson Wanyange said there is need for NEMA to conduct a serious audit on quarry operators in the area since majority of them were not adhering to the laid down protocols.

He said several people have died recently at some of the quarries because of negligence by the operators.

The CC was reacting to an outcry by the Witethie Ward MCA Julius Macharia Taki who had said that these quarries have become death traps.

Among those present during the occasion were Central Region Police Commander Patrick Lumumba, area criminal investigation Chief Jeremiah Ikao and Juja Sub-County DCC Charles Murithii among others.a

He said a divisional police headquarters will be established with a fully fledged police station to boost security in the area.

DCC Charles Murithii said they were currently using a house belonging to the county government and were in the process of constructing an office for the ACC and other government department offices at the 5 acre piece of land.
