Re­lo­cate highly se­cured of­fices out of Nairobi CBD

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

The govern­ment has or­dered the Kenya Tech­ni­cal Train­ers’ Col­lege to re­lo­cate from its long-time site in Gi­giri, next to the US Em­bassy and UN com­plex, for se­cu­rity rea­sons. In sim­ple terms, the col­lege seems to have been la­belled as a se­cu­rity threat to the two ‘priv­i­leged in­sti­tu­tions’.This has how­ever set a welcome prece­dent.

In a sim­i­lar spirit, other priv­i­leged in­sti­tu­tions such as the min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs, the Cen­tral Bank, Po­lice head­quar­ters, the Kenya Rev­enue Au­thor­ity, Par­lia­ment and of­fices of the Pres­i­dent and Deputy Pres­i­dent, should also move out of the cen­tral busi­ness dis­trict. These in­sti­tu­tions have caused a lot of in­con­ve­niences due to their se­cu­rity ar­range­ments. Many of the roads and foot­baths have been closed or are closed at times. Of­fices that de­mand such se­cu­rity should be re­lo­cated to iso­lated sites such as Gi­giri for our con­vinience as well as theirs.
