Interior CS Fred Matiang’i ordered top police officers, from County Commissioners to Police Commandants to ensure that the Building Bridges Initiative project is fully implemented countrywide.
The CS spoke during a two day regional and county commissioners’ forum on the implementation of government projects on Friday, October 30.
The event was held at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC), Nairobi.
Matiang’i urged the police bosses not to bow to pressure, intimidation, or threats by anyone as they were obligated to securing President Uhuru Kenyatta’s legacy.

The police bosses will aid in advising the public on the project and also mobilizing for its support.
Plans are underway to present BBI bills to the Parliament for discussion and approval. Others bills will be approved by the public by through a referendum.
In August, the CS made several police transfers and also appointed a new Principal Administrative, Wilson Njenga, to act as the Secretary for Internal Security.
Nairobi Regional Police Commanders Wilson Njenga and his Western Region counterpart Anne Ngetich were transferred to the Office of the President Headquarters.
The President delegated development tasks to Matiang’i with Deputy President William Ruto allies alleging that he took over duties meant to be handled by the DP.
The CS, however, defended the President’s decision and added that he was learning more on administration and management under the guidance of the Head of State.
“I am like a little child who is being helped to cross a road. I only need your prayers as God holds my hand to help me cross over.
“I have been tipped for greatness in the country and I need your full support,” he stated during a tour in his home county of Nyamira County on Monday, August 31.
