MPs call for establishment of special force to fight terrorism

10 April 2015, 16:14 Joseph Njung'eh

Nairobi - A section of elected leaders from Murang’a County on Friday asked the government to establish a special police force to fight terrorism in the country.

The leaders including Senator Kembi Gitura, Kigumo MP Jamleck Kamau and his Maragua counterpart Kamande Mwangi, said it was the high time that the government put up strategies that can help free the country from terror attacks.

Speaking as they visited families who lost their children in the Garissa terror attack, the leaders called for the formation of a special squad that can help curb such heinous plans of terrorists.

“The squad we are talking of should have necessary training and equipment and should not be subjected to strict hierarchical chain of command but be answerable to Inspector General of police as this will make their operations semi independent,” said Kigumo legislator.

He also called for the reorganization of the Department of Immigration saying some officers who work at borders are being compromised to allow foreigners to get into the country illegally.

“Corruption at border immigration offices is very high and we want that department to be reorganized and the officers be taken for further training and be guided by clear policy to curb corruption,” said Kamau.

Maragua MP said the Dadaab refugee camp should be closed and the refugees relocated to Somalia where they will receive humanitarian help.
