Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Ole Lenku has said that the government is committed to protect Kenyans.
Speaking in Malindi on Thursday during a Kilifi county security meeting the cabinet secretary said that they have put measures in place to curb the issues of terrorism and negative ethnicity among other issues that he said were a big challenge to the security of the country at the moment.
â€œWe are determined to fight negative ethnicity which we know might disrupt peace in this country. We have also put measures in place to fight terrorism which we clearly know is a global problem. Terrorism needs cooperation if it is to be arrested,â€ he said.
The cabinet secretary said that the government has signed the East Africa Security protocol that will enable Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda to fight insecurity in the region.
â€œAt the moment we are going across the counties to ensure that we have one voice in fighting insecurity. The bonding sessions will help us to work better towards marshaling plans towards the service delivery to people,”
“We are also united with the East Africa countries to ensure that Al shabaab does not penetrate further to our countries,â€ he added.
Lenku also encouraged tourists and investors to come to the country.
Principal Secretary, Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government, Mutea Iringo said that they have visited almost 23 counties in the security sensitization programme.
