Nairobi - The US President, Barack Obama commended security officers for the job well done, during his 3-day visit to Kenya.

According to Interior Principal Secretary Monica Juma, President Obama was pleased by the manner in which the security officers ensured that he was safe during his stay in Kenya.

"I commend our security officers for a splendid job they did during President Obama's visit. Some of them have received personal commendation from President Obama and we are very proud of them," Juma said in an interview on one of the local TV stations.

The PS said the visit by President Obama was historic and successful, adding that the Interior Ministry was also pleased by the manner in which the operation was executed to ensure that he was safe.

Close to 10 000 police officers were deployed in the city to provide security during the visit.

Juma said Kenya signed a security and governance initiative with the US which focuses on enhanced management of the Kenyan borders which have been vulnerable points of terror attacks.

"Part of that agreement is going to help us create a more robust border management system and structures and we look forward to that cooperation," Juma said.

The deal also assured Kenya of US support in the war against terror through training, provision of resources and equipment and intelligence sharing.
