Rigathi Gachagua, the deputy president, has warned security forces against forcible removals of vendors and people who are allegedly occupying public land without first engaging the neighborhood security committees.
The vice president referenced recent attempts by Nakuru Kenya Railways police officials to destroy buildings and expel merchants in Ol Kalou town who were reportedly operating next to the railway line when speaking on Saturday, October 14 in Nyandarua County.
The deputy president urged officials to consider the welfare of the populace and said it was improper to evict individuals at night.
Gachagua further stated that the government is dedicated to giving landowners title deeds in order to end the long-standing problem with the settlement.
Gachagua also lauded the efforts of Chiefs and other National Government Officials in the fight to end hazardous alcohol and drug consumption.
He did, however, issue a warning to the administrators over their complacency and laxity in the government-mandated campaign against illegal brews.
