President Kenyatta gets Governors' backing on terror fight

21 May 2014, 10:31

Nairobi - Governors of the 47 counties have rallied behind President Uhuru Kenyatta in the fight against terror and efforts to restore security to the country.

At a summit at State House in Nairobi, which lasted for over five hours, and bringing together leaders of the National and County governments, Governors said security was a bipartisan issue and thus supported all efforts by President Kenyatta to deliver stability.

The Governors also said that they had no problem working with county commissioners as long as they adhere to the law of the land.

“In this issue of security we are working together, if we share information and move together then we are able to make our country safe,” said the Chairman of the Security Committee of the Council of Governors, who is also the Tana River Governor, Hussein Dhado.

The Governors said they understood the challenges facing the country and that as leaders, they were keen to ensure the country was safe for efficient and prompt service delivery.

They urged the national government to formulate a policy on how to deal with radicalization so as to sensitize the youth on the importance of national cohesion.

“Issues of shortage of fuel by our security officers need not arise, given the situation of the country’s security, we feel we need to have a proper structure which will help us have a foundation on how to help our youth,” Governors Dhado further said.

The Governors proposed that a forum be scheduled so as to elevate the issue of security to the national level without politicizing it.
