The Cabinet Secretary for Interior and Coordination of National Government Prof. Kithure Kindiki has reassured the country of the government’s unwavering commitment to fastrack security in the North.
The Prof. CS notes,
“Multi-agency security officers working tirelessly and diligently to fight insecurity in the North Eastern Region and other parts of the Country are true heroes who deserve commendation. Some of our officers have even lost their lives and others injured by armed criminals. No prize is enough to honour our patriotic officers for their diligence.
The Government will go out of its way to facilitate security officers to execute their mandate in protecting citizens and their property, by availing modern equipment to protect them against armed criminals and combat complex security challenges.
The Government of Kenya does not condone extrajudicial killings. Such killings are not only illegal but a violation of the Constitution and other International laws. Days of enforced disappearances are long gone.
Terrorism remains one of the key national security threats and the Government will triumph over terror. Parents and guardians must remain vigilant and counsel their children to resist radicalisation and recruitment into terror groups.”
He made the remarks when he operationalized Kotulo Sub-County, in Wajir County, commissioned Sub-County Headquarters and installed Farah Hassan Mohamed as the first Deputy County Commissioner.
