Government launches Rapid Response Initiative to boost security

07 February 2014, 15:18 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The government has talked tough regarding insecurity in the country during the launch of the Rapid Response Initiative RRI in Nairobi.

Incidences of insecurity have been on the rise in the country in recent months, with many injured or killed and businesses maimed due to the vice.

Terrorism too has been a problem for the government, with attacks by the al-Shabaab terror group, raising fears among Kenyans and potential investors.

Speaking during the launch of the initiative, president Uhuru Kenyatta said that his government is determined to win the war on insecurity.

" The government has put in place measures, not in the least this latest one to curb incidences of insecurity and lawlessness in the country, he said.

Interior security cabinet secretary Joseph Ole Lenku sensitized on the need for Kenyans to help the government deal with insecurity.

" Insecurity is a matter that affects us all and needs input from us all. Kenyans must be ready to ensure that they help report cases of insecurity to the authorities as soon as possible, he said.

Nairobi governor Evans Kidero on his part said that the new response initiative will boost security especially in the capital city.

" With this new initiative, security in the city and its environs will be boosted. I call on all stakeholders to support it in its entirety, he said.

The Rapid Response Initiative aims to boost security in the country by enhancing communication systems and improving on the standard of prevention and response to disasters.
