Security chiefs deliberate on strategy for KDF withdrawal from Somalia

03 June 2015, 08:28 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi – Key security officials met with the Senate’s Security committee at a Kamukunji (formal closed-door meeting) to devise a strategy on the withdrawal of the Kenya Defense Forces (KDF) from Somalia.

Reports from the meeting indicate that the security officials had found an exit strategy of the troops from Somalia but cannot be disclosed to the public.

The security chiefs who attended a five-hour Kamukunji following the complaints on deterioration of security included Interior CS Joseph Nkaissery, Defence CS Raychelle Omamo, Secretary to the Cabinet Monica Juma, Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett, his two deputies Samuel Arachi and Grace Kaindi, Director of CID Ndegwa Muhoro, and the National Intelligence Service Director General, Philip Kameru.

The chairman of the Senate Committee on Security Yusuf Haji who hosted the security chiefs said the meeting was on general insecurity in the country.

“We discussed the general security situation in the country and how best to deal with the emerging threats,” Haji said after the meeting.

“We hope that at the end of the retreat we shall develop a white paper to be presented to the cabinet on how best to address insecurity. The white paper will focus on strategy,” he added.

The security chiefs in attendance declined to speak to the media.
