Insecurity still a challenge, President Kenyatta admits

01 May 2015, 17:50 Robert Chepkwony

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has reiterated that the wave of runaway insecurity caused by terrorists was posing a threat to the country’s development agenda, but said his government was doing all it could to tame the vice.

“Let’s not cheat ourselves that insecurity is over in Kenya. It is still there,” said the President in his speech during today’s Labour Day celebration which also marked the 50th Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) anniversary.

“Security is for all of us, regardless of our social status. As a government, we are doing all we can to stem the insecurity and bring peace to every Kenyan,” said the President, adding that it is the right of every Kenyan to be protected.

The President thanked Kenyans for collaborating with security agencies, saying the concerted efforts have led to arrest of suspected criminals in various parts of the country.

"As a government, once again we will improve the number of our police officers. In the coming budget, we are increasing that which goes to police towards purchase of required equipment to improve on delivery,” he added.

With the changing tactics used by terrorists groups in radicalizing the youth, especially targeting the elite youth, Uhuru urged Kenyans to embrace the Nyuma kumi initiative saying the criminals are living amongst Kenyans.

He further urged political leaders not to play politics in matters security, but rather embrace the government’s efforts to curb the menace.

“We need to talk about the country positively rather than criticism. We have a chance to improve on the wrongs done and make a better life for Kenyans in matters security,” he reiterated.
