In a historic ceremony, Governor George Natembeya presided over the first-ever pass-out parade for new security wardens on Tuesday.

The recruits, selected from a pool of 10,000 applicants, pledged to uphold security and defend the integrity of the county.

Governor Natembeya commended the recruits for completing their rigorous training and praised the team of trainers, comprised of retired senior police officers, for their dedication.

He urged the new wardens to seize this opportunity as a springboard for a fulfilling career serving the community.

The pass-out ceremony marked a significant step in the county’s security development agenda.

Governor Natembeya highlighted the administration’s commitment to improving security by modernizing equipment, investing in training, and enhancing the welfare of officers.

However, the ceremony was not without its political undertones. Governor Natembeya took the opportunity to address recent criticism from Kenya Kwanza leaders, led by National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetang’ula.

He asserted the county’s autonomy and expressed his opposition to any perceived micromanagement.

Local leaders echoed the Governor’s sentiments, criticizing certain legislators for excessive criticism and politicizing recent government directives.

County Assembly Deputy Speaker Obed Mwale Mahanga and Leader of Majority Edwin Koech urged the Governor to stand firm against political intimidation.

Despite the political backdrop, the ceremony also recognized the achievements of individual recruits.

Hosea Kipsang and Sheila Nafula were named the best male and female recruits, respectively, while others received awards for leadership, sports, discipline, and positive attitude.

Notably, Sarah Chelagat, a mother of a one-month-old infant, successfully completed the training, demonstrating remarkable dedication.

County Secretary Truphosa Irene Amere HSC, CECs, County Assembly Clerk Moses Lupao, Chief Officers, and Ward representatives also attended the event.
