IED attacks on the rise because locals 'co-operate' with terrorists

Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaisserry has stated that the terror attacks witnessed over the past few months in Northern Kenya is as a result of the locals colluding with terrorists.

More than 30 people have lost their lives in just one month as a result of a vehicle they were traveling with ran over an improvised explosive device (IED).

The latest case happened on Friday, June 16 which led to loss of 4 people in Mandera.

The CS has however assured Kenyans that more security officers will be deployed in the volatile region to ensure that normalcy has returned.

Nkaissery also called upon the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) to take stern action against National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga, even as Jubilee leaders pile pressure on the government to prosecute him over hate speech and incitement to violence allegations.

According to the CS, investigations are at an advanced stage against the former premiere with a section of Jubilee politicians now demanding that Odinga should apologise publicly for what they term as trying to incite communities against each other in Kajiado County.

“The Kaparo commission should come on board and take legal action against the leadership of NASA. Communities in Kajiado have coexisted for long enough to be set apart because of politics. We are married to Kikuyus,Luos, Luhyas how can you refuse our in-laws to come and see us and bearing in mind selling land is a case of willing seller willing buyer,” said the CS.
