Kitui Police Commended for Effective Measures in Curbing Roaming School Children

By YOANA KIMWELE.

In Kitui, the concerning trend of school children wandering in town centers has prompted significant apprehension among local authorities and community members. On Tuesday, proactive measures were undertaken by Kitui Police officers, led by Inspector Mr. Abdi, to address this pressing issue. They effectively compelled all school children to return to their respective schools rather than loitering in town centers.

The situation had escalated to a critical juncture, with roaming school children causing disturbances in town centers, bus terminals, and streets. Their presence not only disrupted the daily routines of residents but also exposed them to various risks, including engagement in undesirable behaviors such as petty crimes and involvement in risky activities.

The actions spearheaded by Inspector Mr. Abdi and his team underscore the urgency of addressing this issue promptly. It is imperative to establish a safe and conducive environment for all community members, particularly our school-going children. Allowing them to roam freely in town centers not only jeopardizes their safety but also reflects poorly on society as a whole.

One of the underlying causes of this problem stems from the lack of supervision and guidance for these children, especially during school breaks or reopening periods. Without adequate direction, they often gravitate towards town centers, where they are more susceptible to negative influences.
