Gov’t to remove all roadblocks by 1st November, says CS Kindiki

Interior CS Kithure Kindiki has revealed that all roadblocks in the country will be removed by 1st November 2023.

Speaking on Thursday, the Interior CS noted that the directive is from the President as the metals don’t look good on the roads.

According to the CS, the roadblocks had become areas of corruption and motorists had raised concerns over the millions they have lost in the hands of rogue police as bribes.

“The static roadblocks are less effective because people have found ways of circumventing them and evading police officers,” said Kindiki

The CS continued by revealing that the government will now adopt the use of mobile patrols and use of surveillance to curb any security threats posed on the roads moving forward.

Traffic police have also been ordered to continue with their duties strictly but also be courteous to motorists.

“There specific roadblocks where we have been told that police officers are treating motorists with a lot of respect. This is a report that we have received from elected leaders,”┬áhe said

CS Kindiki admitted that those police officers demanding bribes either feel entitled in their position while others need that extra income.
