In his remarks, Kakamega County Commissioner, Mr. Abdilrazak Jaldesa expressed concern over the high incidence of crime in the County including defiling, lynching, murders, rape, drug abuse and suicides. The Commissioner also cautioned wananchi in the County to always remain alert saying perpetrators of terror usually target vulnerable groups such as students and children for their radicalization agenda. "There are many dysfunctional families in the County who need rehabilitation and care. Since Kakamega is not immune to terror, we need to be vigilant and ahead of their evil schemes," he said.
