Private Security Officers are no longer referred to as “Watchees” ~ this tag ceased when the private security regulation Act, 2016 was enacted.
In the strongest terms possible – we condemn the utterances of Hon. Kimani Ichungwah- Mp for Kikuyu – for the demeaning reference he made towards guards while in Msambweni in the company of Hon. Hassan Omar, Hon. Khalwale and Hon. Muthama.
Private security officers complement state security agencies and demeaning both means disrespecting there roles and space in the society as able citizens that toil and pay taxes.
It is a reflection of how “people” treat private security guards forgetting ~ they are offer crucial services in our daily lives.
