NAIROBI, Kenya, Jun 22- A multi-agency team of National Police Service (NPS), Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS),  National Youth Service (NYS) and safety marshals has been deployed to provide security during the World Rally Championships (WRC) in Naivasha.

The rally is set to take place from Thursday to Sunday.

Inspector-General of Police Hilary Mutyambai said the team is expected to offer “total and round the clock security to all participants and stakeholders.”

“The plan is executed in three-tier, prior to, during and post-event. The security team comprises both air and land for the provision of total security,” Mutyambai stated.

He pointed out that so far the security team has offered maximum security during the pre-rally activities that have been taking place in Naivasha.

“So far the pre-event has been executed successfully and I implore on the security teams to replicate the same in the remaining last tiers,” said Mutyambai.

He further cautioned on traffic flow interruptions and called on everyone to heed to traffic advisories issued and cooperate with security officials.

Preparations for the event that will be returning to Kenya for the first time in 19-years are at an advanced stage with the Service Park having been opened to everyone on June 11.
