A group of police officers in the country have continued to put a smile on faces of the vulnerable in society.

Dubbed ‘Detail 79 Investment Group’, the group is made up of officers who graduated from Kiganjo Police Training College in 2001.

Since then, the group has been doing various charity work as a way of making a better society where everyone is living in a dignified manner.

Speaking to journalists in Nakuru on Saturday during a donation of foodstuffs and non food items by the group to AIC Bondeni’s Malaika Initiative Project (taking care of vulnerable children), D79 Chairman John Irungu stated that they are 300 officers who have been supporting each other as well as community.

The group of officers has been able to do more than four charity initiatives in various communities where they operate.

He appealed to the society to embrace the vulnerable groups in society so that they can feel to be fully part of the society.

“As officers we felt it good to also touch the lives of the vulnerable in society and that is why we have been doing this charity work in various areas of our operation. We call on everyone in the society to embrace the vulnerable, for that is the only way that they will feel part of the society” he said.

Founder Malaika Initiative Project at Bondeni Ms Grace Mukami on her part lauded the group of officers for the gesture.

She noted that since establishment of the project in 2015,they have been relying on the church and well wishers for support.

According to her, the project has faced many challenges among them funding but with the help from the church and well-wishers, they have been able to survive.

Mukami called on the society to embrace the project and assist the vulnerable children to feel as part of the society.

“We are grateful to the well-wishers and the church for the continued support. We all have a role to embrace these children who are vulnerable” she said.

Sentiments echoed by Chairman Malaika Initiative Alex Njoroge who stated that the Project has been key in transforming the lives of the vulnerable children in society.

He was however quick to note that the project calls for love, patience and consistency adding that he is optimistic that the project will be spread to other parts of the country so that many vulnerable children can be reached.

“Since the project commenced, we have seen a lot of transformation and we hope that it will spread to other parts of the country” said Njoroge.

It is a new dawn in Kivumbini Ward Politics in Nakuru Town East constituency following the endorsement of Independent candidature of Neto Sakwa Alukutsa by Luo community.

In a ceremony which brought together family, clergy, elders and friends from both Mulembe Nation and JokaNyanam Community in Kivumbini Ward, the two communities saw a Memorandum of Understanding reached.

Under the MoU, Sakwa committed to protect the interest of all tribes and social classes who reside within the ward.

Speaking at Christian Brotherhood Church in Manyani, Kivumbini Ward on Sunday, Sakwa vowed to ensure leadership of inconclusiveness once he makes it in the August Polls.

“We have suffered a lot but this time round with proper team work we can deliver the seat and end this issue where the people of Kivumbini have been denied that democracy to participate in party primaries by those who have resources. Under my leadership, I will ensure that fair distribution of resources, bursary and development projects through needs-based consultations and all inclusive priorities via public participation platforms” said Sakwa.

It will be noted that Kivumbini is a strong ODM zone in Nakuru with majority of those who have led the Ward before having been elected on ODM ticket.

However, as things stand now there is a clear paradigm shift in the politics of the cosmopolitan Ward.

This has been occasioned by the fact that the people have on many occassions denied the chance to participate in a free and fair nominations.

In 2017 for instance, the nomination exercise by the ODM party did not sail through smoothly leading to unclear fate where newcomer in politics Wilbur Onyango was handed the certificate.Came 2022 and the ODM primaries that were to take place on 1st April did not take place with the National Elections Board led by Catherine Muma citing insecurity issues.

It later emerged that the ODM party had issued two certificates to incumbent Wilbur Onyango and one Hussein. It is however not clear whose name among the two was forwarded to the IEBC.

But with the new development where Sakwa-an independent candidate was endorsed by Luo community for his continued support to the people at all times, is a clear indicator that there is a change in politics of Kivumbini.

The endorsement was witnessed by among others Elder Stanley Kinuthia on behalf of Manyani Landlords and Bishop Geoffrey Buliba of the Christian Brotherhood Church (CBC Upendo) on behalf of Kivumbini clergy.

Present at the function were his former ODM competitors Marcel Mulah and Alphonce Owino.

It will be recalled that former Jubilee aspirant for the seat James Kihoria Nandwa has also in the recent days declared that he will be supporting Sakwa.

The Kivumbini Ward seat has so far attracted the incumbent Wilbur Onyango(ODM), Neto Sakwa(Independent), Rukia Wanjiru(UDA) and Robert Moita of Jubilee Party among others.
