Nyanza Region Commissioner James Kianda has urged the security agencies at Isibania border in Migori County to eliminate all forms of illegal trade.

Kianda who was speaking at Isibania on Wednesday said the government has the needed capacity to stamp out drugs and human trafficking at the Kenyan-Tanzanian border.

The RC challenged the Kenya Police, Immigration, Kenya Revenue and the relevant stakeholders to join their efforts to manage illegal movement of goods.

He regretted that drugs which includes bhang continue to ruin the lives of young Kenyans reportedly sneaked inside the country through our porous borders.

Kianda further wants the security agencies to stop unauthorized goods entering the country since it raises health concerns once they are used.

The Regional Commissioner however expressed deep concern over continued existence of illegal guns in Kuria region. He called on the police to work with other government security agencies at the grass route level to repossess illegal guns.

Kianda was speaking at Kenya Revenue offices at Isibania when he led Regional Presidential Delivery Unit team to inspect government development projects in Migori County.
