Government seeks US help in curbing terror

25 March 2014, 13:39 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The government is seeking help from the United States and other European powerhouses to curb the increasing terror threat in the country.

The move comes after several attacks in the country that have gone undetected including the most recent in Likoni Mombasa which left six people dead.

And after several similar incidences in the recent past as well as the growing belief among Kenyans that the government is ill equipped to deal with terror the government has come out to ask for help.

The SOS has been sent to US president Barrack Obama by the government to try help with the current situation.

The US has been known to predict a number of terror attacks in previous times as well as having a well drilled intelligence network.

" The government is seeking help from the west to help with terrorism which is fast becoming a major issue, a source in the office of the president said.

It is not yet completely clear what kind of help the government is looking for but it is understood that they are hoping to have better intelligence on planned attacks.

The revelation came after president Uhuru Kenyatta urged Kenyans not to give up on the war on terror.

" The government is committed to ensuring that this is a safe country and will not give up until that is the case, the bullish president said Tuesday.

There have been frequent attacks in Mombasa, a city that is believed to harbour a strong number of radicals in recent months even though the latest attack has not been linked to the Al Shabaab terror group.
