Head of the Public Service Francis Kimemia has urged the international community to help restructure the country of Somalia.
Kimemia said those interested should help rebuild the country of Somalia which has far been affected by war but the Kenya country through its Amisom troops have helps to stabilize the country.
Speaking during the prize giving day at Kagumo High School in Nyeri County, Kimemia said if the country is reconstructed, the over 600,000 refugees living in other countries will help to return to their own country and re build it.
“We need that country to remain secure and refugees return in their own country. The international community should come in,” he said.
At the same time, Kimemia who is also the Secretary to the cabinet said the Government will deal firmly with the Mombasa Republican Council (MRC) criminal gang to ensure they do not succeed in disrupting preparations for the March 4 general elections.
He said no effort will be spared in dealing with all criminal gangs to ensure wananchi are secure to go about their business in peace.
Speaking a day after thugs suspected to be members of the MRC attacked a rally addressed by a Cabinet Minister, leading to the death of three people; he said the gang will face the full force of the law saying their agenda of secession will not be entertained.
Kimemia urged Kenyans not to be cowed into not registering for the elections next year, saying no one had the right to deny others their right to choose leaders of their choice.
”I appeal unto the youth to acquire national identity cards so that they should be able to participate in next year's election. I also urge you not to be dragged into any forms of electoral violence. The youth should remember it was their future at stake if the country disintegrated,” he cautioned.
Kimemia who is an old boy of the school pledged a government grant of Sh 15 million to start the rehabilitation and modernization of Kagumo High School.
He was accompanied by Central PC Japhter Kiplimo Rugut and JKUAT university Chancellor Prof. Francis Gichaga.
