Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has laughed off claims by human rights groups of violations in the ongoing war on terror.
The president, speaking during the GSU pass-out parade In Embakasi Thursday, stated that there was no room for the government to take a step back in the war on terror.
He insisted that officers both in the army, police and innocent civilians had paid the ultimate price of death in the war on terror and the government had a duty to look out for them and their families by winning the war on terror.
" We will not relent and we will not stop until the bad elements in the country are done away with. We will not be stopped by words that have no meaning, he said.
He then went on to mourn the two policemen who lost their lives in a car bomb attack Wednesday night in Eastleigh.
"My condolences go out to the families and friends of Francis Murage and Samuel Cheptoo who lost their lives in the line of duty.
" I also urge all Kenyans to share relevant information with police to assist combat crime in the country.
Experts have intimated that if the police had bomb sensing equipment in the Eastleigh incident, they could have saved their lives and the president said his government was on top of the matter.
" We'll commit even more resources to provide security officers with
modern equipment & tools to enable them effectively execute their
duties, he added.
