She said there is an urgent need to prevent the youth from engaging in radicalization by providing employment and integration.

Ambassador Knudsen called upon the relevant stakeholders to work closely with the security organs in the country to ensure there is full respect of human rights.

“We need to use various methods including prevention to counter radicalization of the youth,” she added.

Act communication specialist, Festus Kivundu said they will initiate the anti-radicalization campaign in six coastal towns.

Kivundu said the project will not only tackle the issue of radicalization but will also target other security challenges in the region.

Act Kenya has also been appointed the custodian of the projects in Kenya within the five year period.

This comes as the Kenyan government continues with efforts to fight radicalization at the coast.
