Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta lauded security agents for their selfless efforts in countering radical extremism and criminal activities in the country.
The President noted that the country’s counter-terrorism strategy was paying off with reduced number of terror incidents being recorded in 2016.
Regrettably 16 people perished in 2016 following terror incidents orchestrated by Somalia Islamist terrorists Al-Shabaab as compared to 202 innocent lives who perished in 2015.
"There has been significant progress in counter-terrorism arising from enhanced capacity.
"These emanated from terrorism and other forms of organized crime, which required innovative ways to tackle," Kenyatta said at a ceremony to receive 500 police vehicles meant to stabilize security in the country earlier in the week.
Kenya has experienced a series of sporadic attacks since its troops entered Somalia in 2011 to flush out Al-Qaeda linked terrorist network, Al-Shabaab especially at the coastal region, Lamu notably and in NEP region especially Mandera.
Recent report from Kenya’s security agencies indicate that hundreds of youth have been intercepted on their way to Somalia to join Al-Shabaab since 2015 thus the terrorist suffering a huge blow on it recruitment drive.
The joint collaboration between security agencies, Police, Intelligence Service and Defence/Military has registered huge successes over the Al-Qaeda linked Al-Shabaab.
