Subject: A Policy for Installation of Security Lights in the County

THAT, aware that Article 29 of the Constitution of Kenya, 2010 grants every citizen a right to freedom and security; further aware that paragraph 5 of Part Two of the Fourth Schedule to the Constitution provides for street lighting as a function of the  County Government;  noting that recent months have witnessed a marked increase in the number of insecurity incidences across the Country and more so in Nairobi City County; concerned that most of the streets in the County are in darkness due to lack of lighting, which has contributed to an increase in crime within the County as evidenced by muggings and other violent crimes; further concerned that some buildings have no adequate lightning as per the standard practice worldwide; noting that for the County to realize a 24 hour economy, security for business people and residents is indispensable; this Assembly urges the County Executive to formulate a policy to provide for installation of outdoor security lighting in all buildings, gates and streets in the County to be turned on by 7.00 pm to 6.00 am daily.
