Calls for joint effort in war on terror
By Cyrus Ombati | March 3rd 2015
Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery has called on regional countries to collaborate through sharing of resources to contain terrorists.
Nkaissery said cooperation is critical to ensuring stability in the troubled region where proxy forces are fanning instability. He said the region is also home to multiple militants and terrorist organisations like the Al-Shabaab, Boko Haram among others.
"Due to globalisation and rapid technology innovation, criminals have taken advantage of this window and have executed and masked their nebulous activities unhindered," he said.
The CS said without peace and security, there will be no meaningful development.
Nkaissery spoke when he addressed a meeting of regional police bosses -East African Police Chief's Cooperation Organisation (EAPCCO) - in Naivasha that was discussing transnational crimes on the rise. EAPCCO is made up of Kenya, Burundi, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Rwanda, Seychelles, Sudan, South Sudan Uganda and Rwanda.
