Govt vows to defeat extremism for stability

17 July 2014, 08:04

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta said on Wednesday the government will work closely with friendly nations to defeat extremism and other evils that threaten cohesion and harmonious co-existence in society.

He said the government will not allow criminals who have been carrying out several grenade and bomb attacks in the country, to hide behind the freedom of worship enshrined in the Constitution to break the law.

"We are ready and committed to partner with our friends to ensure harmony and cohesion among Kenyans. On behalf of the people of Kenya, I thank all the Iftar food donors," he said in Nairobi when he flagged-off a truck carrying foodstuffs donated by Muslim Ambassadors in Kenya to be distributed to the needy in the country.

Kenyatta said the fundamental freedoms in the Constitution should be enjoyed responsibly.

President Kenyatta assured the donors that the food will go directly to the beneficiaries in Lamu, Mandera, Wajir and Moyale, among other needy counties.

Kenya continues to suffer several attacks as terrorists change tuck to beat heightened security and carry on with their heinous acts undetected.

The latest incidents have happened in the coastal region, Nairobi, and some cities including towns in northern Kenya that have bore the brunt of terror attacks.
