Recently Kenyans have been hearing that we will be having cctv’s everywhere which are supposed to enhance surveillance and security, but one thing bugs me in that equation. Every time I go to my home town I get a new police hotline which I cannot even memorize, same thing happens whenever I move neighborhoods; I have to start looking for a new hotline and the nearest police station or post. What happened to the simple 999 emergency hotline? Before we go to all this new technology, why not first upgrade what we have. Refurbish our emergency switchboards, ensure that there are people on call and others ready for dispatch 24/7 365 days a year? What happens when someone has an emergency in an area where they do not have the hotline numbers? What are some areas in public service do you think we have misplaced priorities?
