23 June 2014, 09:07
Nairobi - Foreign Affairs and International Trade Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed has refuted claims Kenya is facing a crisis due to the current spate of violence in the country.
Mohamed said that the country could be facing a security challenge but was not in a crisis.
“We are the target of terrorist activities due to our relationships with the Western countries,” said Mohamed.
She added that the terrorists had targeted Western interests in the country including the US Embassy bombing of 1998.
She maintained that Kenya’s relationship with the Western countries is in good shape. This is after numerous travel advisories on Kenya by the Western countries including the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia among others.
To demonstrate the country’s stability, the Cabinet Secretary said ministers from different countries were in Kenya last week to attend the ACP-EU conference.
She also said that this week United Nations Environmental Agency will be held in Kenya where several Presidents and hundreds of ministers and top environmental minds will be in Nairobi for the meeting.
She also said that two global institutions, UNAIDS IT division and WHO Global Security section, had brought their headquarters into Kenya.
