Nairobi - Kenya and Rwanda signed a deal to tackle rising transnational crime after a week-long regional police chiefs meeting that ended Monday in Naivasha.

Inspector-General of Police, Joseph Boinett said that the deal entailed joint operations and training in a bid to address rising cases of transnational crime.

Boinett noted that this was one of the recommendations from the Eastern African Police Chief's Organization (EAPCO) which advocated for joint collaboration.
