We risk losing an entire generation- CS Kindiki on abuse of Drugs.
Speaking at the PEFA Church Kamahuha, Maragua Constituency, Murang’a Country, where he joined christians in worship and Prayer, Interior CS Kindiki highlighted that the end illicit drugs initiative has not stopped.
He outlined that the use of this drugs will cause diverse effects to the entire generation which is supposed to be leading in future days.
He stated,”The manufacture, trade, use, and abuse of illicit alcohol and narcotic drugs in Central Kenya and other parts of the Country is a serious security threat. We risk losing an entire generation. The Government will not backtrack in this fight and will deploy equal, if not more ruthlessness and viciousness as it has in combating terrorism and banditry.”
Notably, he talked of religious extremism that had brain washed the people of the nation. He put it across that in as much as the government respects freedom of worship, they must deal with pastors misleading the nation.
He stated,”Religious extremism also ranks in the list of national security threats. The government respects the freedom of worship and acknowledges the role played by a majority of religious leaders and organisations in spiritually nourishing their followers and contribution to development programs in various sectors among them education, health, and water.”
”However, the process of making religious organisations accountable will continue until all rogue preachers and criminals who use Holy scriptures to mislead their followers are conclusively dealt with,” he added.
