1st December 2015, Kenya deployed additional army contingent to its border with Somalia to fight and neutralize Al Shabaab threat.
In the past week, authorities have pointed the possibility of Al Shabaab crossing over to Kenya through the porous border in groups of between five and ten and harassing locals as well as demanding water and food supplies.
According to North Eastern Regional Coordinator Mohamed Saleh, heavy rains and impassable roads have grossly hindered regular security patrols but more KDF personnel has already been deployed with more equipment.
Armored military hamvees and choppers are being used on the patrols, dropping off personnel to deal with any eventuality.
Al Shabaab militants are escaping with injuries sustained from AMISOM inside Somalia and hence possibilities of crossing over to the Kenyan side added Mr Saleh.
KDF has joined the Anti-Terrorism Police Unit (ATPU) in a new drive to scale down human trafficking from Ethiopia reported to be on the increase.
Intelligence has pointed at a cartel of Kenyan traffickers, describing themselves as businessmen operating in Moyale, Marsabit town, Laisamis, Isiolo and Nairobi.
KDF soldiers from the school of infantry were deployed last week Friday to the Isiolo-Nairobi route in security effort aimed at netting and neutralizing aliens being trafficked through the country by cartels based in Kenya.
