Interior CS Matiangi has given an order for all bars to be closed during the census weekend and further directed police to implement the directive.
“We are going to going close all our social places especially the bars at 5 pm to give you an hour to be home before the enumerators arrive at 6 pm so that they can find you at home,” he said.
Speaking at Embu Stadium during the official opening of the 10th edition of the Water Services Companies Games, the CS noted that the officials carrying out the exercise are not strangers but people we are all used to.
“No one will come from outside their sub-location, which means they know people around there, they are known and they know their way around,” he said.
CS Matiang’i further assured Kenyans that security will be beefed up and all security personnel have been recalled from leave to ensure that the exercise is carried out effectively.
He also issued a stern warning to those who will purport to be monitoring the census exercise without clearance adding that foreign agencies and individuals had been vetted for approval.
The exercise is to be officially conducted on August 24 and 25, 2019.
