Kipkemei, at the same time, cautioned them against employing foreigners without requisite documents, adding that anyone found flouting the law will be prosecution.

The county security boss spoke while addressing a public baraza at the border town of Rombo that borders Tanzania where many a times the area has been used as a conduit of shipping in smuggled goods.

“I know that the East African Charter is supposed to hold us together as a unit but at all times we all need to exercise caution. I am therefore instructing all foreigners who are working without permits in this area to liaise with the offices of chiefs near them and notify them of their presence,” said Kipkemei who is on a four-day tour of Kajiado South Sub County.

He claimed there has been increase of theft cases being reported in the area and therefore the state cannot allow that continue.

“We seek all the approvals you need because from today the OCPD will start a swoop. If we find you without valid documents, we will arrest you and prepare for your deportation after court process,” Kipkemei advised.

Kipkemei also put to task area Assistant County Commissioner and all Chiefs under him to close down all illegal beer outlets beginning yesterday (Sunday) and vowed to take punitive administrative actions against the officers who shall be dimmed not to be performing.

“It is regrettable that some children of this area have become drunkards yet their peers elsewhere are in schools developing their knowledge. I am therefore directing area ACC, OCPD, Chiefs and the Nyumba Kumi initiative ambassadors to close down all bars that are not licensed and those suspected to be “children’s joints” starting today and if you don’t do that here. Call me if you find out that our officers are not taking any action,” said the commissioner.

During the same meeting, Kipkemei also directed the Sub-County Land Board not to approve any land transactions without full consent of family members.

“I am shocked that there are several land cases among families which happened after either the children or the father sold land without consent of all family members. This is unacceptable because it brings a lot of animosity,” said Kipkemei.

He said the land committee board being chaired by Kajiado South DCC, Lawrence Kinyua, should not approve any land transactions deals without full consent of the families.”

Further, Kipkemei reiterated his position on the fight against early marriage and female genital mutilation.

“My legacy is to leave this county free of offensive traditions like circumcision of young girls and early child marriages that impede their development,” he said.
