Police to check hotel records of visitors, PC



By Chris Mahandara.

Hotel owners in Western Province have been directed to keep an up to date record of visitors and report any suspects to the police to prevent attacks by Alshabab militia.

Western Provincial Commissioner Mr. Samuel Kilele said legal action will be taken against any hotel that has no records of visitors to ensure that security in the area is maintained.

The PC asked security officers to make impromptu visits to the hotels to ensure that the directive is enforced.

Speaking during Madaraka day celebrations at Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega town, the administrator further asked security officers at Busia and Malaba on the border of Kenya and Uganda to be vigilant to ensure that no aliens are allowed into the country.

Mr. Kilele decried increased incidents of crime in Kakamega where gangs armed with pangas descend on innocent people at night saying police were trailing them and will soon make arrests.

He urged the locals to volunteer information to the police to ensure that all criminals in the area are brought to book.
