Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Need For Security

It was not long after a misterious action was discovered in my village Makoi.Thestealing of telephone cables and transformers had spread throughaway from the start to the end of the village. This was after atleast two weeks breaking news spreading to all corners of the village. The habit of the thieves continued until when security was ensured in Makoi, every corner was under security which was ensured by the youth. Things turned in collusson when the thieves were seen in the village in the midnight fully prepared to steal. As soon as they were at the top of the telephone posts, the youths and the homeguard Mr Hebrew Mwangi arrived and sorrounded the armed men with their weapons steadily. The gang of the two robbers refused to go by the regulations given by the homeguard and there was no otherwise. The homeguard shot the robber at the post to death with his gun, the other robber tried to escape but there was no way to escape. He was taken to jail and that is where he is until this hour.From that day no robbery activities has been done again in my village.
