Mombasa - The chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Administration and National security, Asman Kamama has said that some members of the Recce squad should be deployed in terrorism-prone areas across the country.
Kamama said that the deployment of the Recce squad to North Eastern and Coastal regions will help to curb incidents like the recent massacre of Garissa University students.
Addressing journalists at the Sarova Whitesands Resort in Mombasa County during the committee's three-day workshop, the chairman said that the committee will soon embark on a fact-finding mission in Garissa to know exactly what went wrong and establish the officials who mishandled information and thus leading to the death of 148 innocent Kenyans.
He reiterated that once they compile their report, they shall table the findings in parliament.

Kamama urged all parents who have their children missing and suspected to have joined Al Shabaab to report the cases to the police for further investigations. He also urged the police to work with speed and intelligence once they receive information from the people.
On the recruitment of police officers, Kamama said that the criteria used was favorable since all people who have higher grades are always out to study and not to join the service.
Meanwhile, he said that the move by the government to freeze accounts of institutions suspected to be financing terrorism in the country was a bold move, adding that so long as the government has sufficient evidence against the groups and individuals, then stern action must be taken against them.
