Terrorism now a part of Kenya's fabric

07 July 2015, 17:28 William Korir

Nairobi - It is next to impossible to stop every terror attack in the planet from taking place but more can be done to protect the people of north Eastern Kenya from the inevitable death that awaits them.

The death of 14 more Kenyans Tuesday, innocent Kenyans at that, caught in a battle they have little knowledge of was an indicator of just how much terror affected Kenya has become.

The 14 died in Mandera County, a region that has been battered by gun and bomb wielding Al Shabaab militants since the war on Somalia begun five years ago and one that it seems will not end for residents.

One might be forgiven for thinking the government really does not care anymore about Mandera.

" They had targeted 150 people but only managed to kill 14, with swift response from security agencies preventing the death of many more," Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery told Kenyans of the latest massacre to hit Mandera.

Scant consolation to already scared Kenyans seeking redress over the continued loss of innocent souls.

Nkaissery also confirmed that the government had no prior knowledge of an imminent attack taking place, which is bound to raise more questions than answers as to why once again, the government has been caught napping.

" I think that the government has reached the point of no return as far as this matter is concerned, Isaac Chepng'etich, a former intelligence officer told News24.

" The fact that the CS can admit there was no prior intelligence of the attack speaks volumes of where this war has hit the government."

" You cannot prevent every attack but to see a senior security official like Nkaiserry admit to such a thing means that he too is getting tired of either the current methods being used or the fact that he has to answer such questions periodically".

" This war will cost lives and that is something we must all accept. I guess you have to look at the positives which is that only 14 died," he added.

Kenyans though will not accept readily that terrorism is a part of their lives and will want better from a government that has in the past stated that it will fight to end terror in the country.
