Ole Lenku unapologetic over Eastleigh incursions

07 April 2014, 13:30 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Interior cabinet secretary Joseph Ole Lenku says that there will be no relenting on the incursions in Eastleigh and Mombasa until the current security situation is contained.

There has been a huge outcry over the government's continued assault on Eastleigh following terrorist attacks in the area.

Leaders of the Somali community which has been expressly targeted by the incursions have complained about government harassment.

Top ranking leaders like Aden Duale have also criticized the Jubilee government of which they are part of over the matter and asked for a review of the matter.

But Ole Lenku says that there will be no relenting from the government as it looks to try wade off the increased insecurity in the country.

With public and investor confidence drastically dropping, Ole Lenku says that there is no way the government will let the situation get out of hand.

" The incursions will continue. That is as much as I will say, he said.

" It is unfortunate that it is happening but it is necessary that we are on this issue and we are able to have it under control because the situation at the moment is not good.

" There are complaints as there ever are but we will not stop the operation until we get to the bottom of it, he added.

So far, over 2,000 people have been arrested by police in operations to try quell the ongoing terrorist activities in the country.
