The government is progressively working round the clock to position Kajiado County as an attractive investment destination for local and foreign investors and improve its appeal as one of the best cosmopolitan settlements.

Speaking during security meeting with government administrators from the county on Thursday, CS described the county as one of Kenya’s ‘microsm’ and later on directed the security teams to step up collaboration with other stakeholders and explore avenues toward finding long lasting solution to security issues recently reported in the area.
“Kajiado is among few counties that are completely cosmopolitan and we have Kenyans from every corner of our country. There have been some incidents along the border involving Kiambu and Makueni, but I assure residents that we in security sector will do everything humanly possible to ensure this place remains peaceful and stable,” he said.
