SECURITY

Askaris (guards) are on duty by night and day. They are from the local Pokot tribe and are armed with traditional spears, bows and arrows.

Security has never been a problem at the Centre; this is possibly due to the fact that the Centre maintains excellent relations with the Pokot and the police.

The Marich Pass Police Station has a 24-hour radio link with district headquarters in Kapenguria (and thence Nairobi). This link can be used for emergencies.
