Funds issue stalls Police election deployment

​ The deployment of police for the election operations is being stalled due to funding issues.

Police Commissioner Gari Baki said there was delay due to slow release of funds in the past few weeks.

“K8 million of the K121 million needed to run the operations have been released from Treasury.”

Baki said the other K21 million is expected to be released most likely today or tomorrow.

He added that the outstanding K21 million is still very much needed to carry out the full cost of deployment.

“The K8 million has been used to set up the provincial operating posts already.”

Treasury will be releasing outstanding funds and the troops will be ready for deployment soon after.
