Mombasa - Kenyan Human rights bodies have ganged up together to end extremism and radicalization within communities.

Speaking in a sectoral forum on human rights and deradicalisation forum in Mombasa the leaders from the National commission for human rights, office of public prosecutions, non-governmental organisations and security agents agreed to work closely to fill the gaps that exist within different levels of administration to end insecurity in the country.

Addressing in the workshop Mombasa senator Hassan Omar who was the chief guest said Muslim youths and religious leaders have always been targeted by the police without any actions being  taken calling for quick investigations on who kills them.

“The rate at which our youth are involving themselves to terrorism is worrying ,we need to have a dialogue with our youth and religious leaders to get their views for a better society’’,said Omar .

He added that there was need to have a proper strategy to involve the youth on community issues so that they could not involve themselves in criminal activities.

However, Margret Awuor from the police service commission and who was also in the workshop said the police are empowered to encounter any national security threats and that the law was to be followed. She said the police vetting exercise would be transparent and that it will clean all departments for better service delivery to the public.

The bodies have also proposed to push for the filling of the gaps between the youth and old, religious leaders and their followers, government and communities to bring cohesion.

“It is the beginning of a process to work with specific sectors in particular the youth  an religious leaders to promote understanding and cohension.we must all work hand in hand with all affected sectors to address security concerns and ensure peace and tranquility is preserved,"said Husein Khalid executive director Haki Africa Organization.
