Construction of the 700km Kenya-Somalia border wall is on course, Interior Cabinet Secretary (CS) Joseph Nkaissery confirmed.
The construction of the Kenya-Somalia border wall is aimed at barring unwanted persons from freely crossing over into the country.
According to CS Nkaissery, the security border wall will not deter or limit movement of people to and from Somalia as earlier perceived.
The wall is most importantly aimed at barring Al-Shabaab terrorist’s infiltration, and the wall will help security authorities on checking them as they try to cross to and from Somalia.
The security wall will have designated entry point at Mandera, Elwak, Liboi and other areas down to Lamu manned by security personnel and Immigration officers.
The security border wall will also have CCTVs installed at strategic points and will consist of various obstacles including a ditch and a patrol road for the security agents. The fence will run across the whole Kenya-Somalia border from Kiunga in Lamu County to the Mandera-Ethiopia border at River Dawa.
Designated border points will also have police posts, Kenya Revenue Authority officers among other government offices to provide vital services.
CS Nkaissery made the brief on Kenya-Somalia border wall progress on Sunday 24th April 2016 when he met group of Marehan clan leaders in Nairobi to discuss security issues.
Nkaissery called on for continued support from local clans and especially the Marehan group for Kenya and Somalia that shares a volatile border to achieve security and stability.
