Well, we(the sober minded) talkers argued here that it was kids play to vandalize the Safaricom Cctv cameras since they are mounted at a very low height and without any barriers to prevent anyone intent on vandalism to reach them but most of you were content to go by Bob Collymore's lazy logic that no one could dare vandalize a Cctv camera that was live. The bad news is that it has started and several cameras have already been vandalized along Jogoo Rd. Unless Safaricom and the government acts very fast, their grand project is headed for a spectacular failure if the vandalism spreads across the city.

Just as well! I never thought those cameras would help with anything and I don't think any different now! It was just another ripoff!

There is nothing without a solution. Vandalism is easy to deal with only that we lack a serious police force. They only act when pressure is applied

Like someone said hapo juu this is the product of our poor law enforcement. No one would dare try vandalize a CCTV camera if it is live because that would mean you'd be hunted down and your ass thrown in jail.

No one would handle buy such merchandize either as you'd have your ass thrown in jail too for handling stolen goods.

Shida Ni moja tu, we have shitty law enforcement.

My sentiments exactly.. How on earth can thieves vandalise that which is supposed to be protecting the populous? The "watchers" should have seen the vandals approach, vandalise and steal the equipment and respond. Sai, it means that crimes could take place right in front of the cameras and nothing would happen to the miscreants. Either the watchers don't bother, or cant notice in which case what are they for. the answer to terrorism or crime? laughable

samavicon was only interested in the money the government was supposed to offer it. The firm's top honchos don't care about kenyans' welfare.

The problem is simple. They were able to vandalise because at the height they were the cameras were vulnerable. They can increase the height, or they can set up police posts next to the cameras, they can set an electric fencing at a certain height on the pole, they can enclose the cameras in a reinforced transparent glass/plastic cage etc and above all improve surveillance, enforcement and response. I mean, the solutions to vandalism are endless. The first and most important step that some dumbos are trying to rubbish here is that the cameras are in place. That is most crucial. All others are operational challenges that can be overcome. Anyone oppossing the cameras is either a criminal or intending to join crime soon. Utashikwa

We are not opposed to the cameras, but the question we are asking is if thugs can vandalize them with impunity, of what good Will they be for me, mwananchi wa kawaida, when i'm being mugged.

The cameras should have seen the perpetrators approach..And the 'watchers" could have acted as the perpetrators were still in the act.

most of these vandalism cases are usually an inside job the people who install them know whats precious and the market ..They also know how to extract the components...
way back when the rural electrification programme started transformers kept vanishing and kplc always blamed the villagers but one question they never answered where does an ordinary villager get the equipment to vandalise the tx ? how does he even know how to switch of the mains? And lastly where will he sell it?
