Nairobi - As Kenya comes to grip with the aftermath of Westgate attack, the security bosses held a crisis meeting on Sunday amid criticism of the country’s counter-terrorism and intelligence strategy.
According to The Standard the day-long meeting at Harambee House followed allegations that authorities had prior warning of a possible terror attack that was not acted on and which has triggered a blame-game.
Later on in the day the Cabinet Secretary for Interior Joseph ole Lenku addressed the media where he declined to comment on the purported leaked intelligence briefings suggesting security organs were lax, but said that nine suspects were in custody, held under counter-terrorism laws, although he could not reveal their identities or nationalities.
