The Nairobi gov­ern­ment has part­nered with four or­gan­i­sa­tions to over­haul Kil­i­mani po­lice sta­tion for Sh500 mil­lion.

The part­ners are the Na­tional Po­lice Ser­vice, the Chi­nese Em­bassy, the Kil­i­mani Project Foun­da­tion and the Kenya Pri­vate Sec­tor Al­liance Foun­da­tion.

In­spec­tor Gen­eral of Po­lice Joseph Boin­net yes­ter­day said the sta­tion will be a model for East Africa.

“The mas­ter plan shows the sta­tion will be de­vel­oped on the ex­ist­ing five acres. Mod­ern fa­cil­i­ties will be de­vel­oped in two phases,” he said.

Phase One will cost Sh300 mil­lion and the sec­ond stage will cost Sh200 mil­lion. County sec­re­tary Robert Ay­isi said, “We are de­lighted to part­ner with the Na­tional Po­lice Ser­vice in this project. It will go a long way in im­prov­ing the lives of of­fi­cers.”
