Kenya hopes polls in Somalia to improve security

01 September 2016, 22:48

Mandera (Xinhua) -- Kenyan authorities said on Thursday that the forthcoming elections slated for neighboring Somalia in September and October will help enhance security in the region.

Mandera County Commissioner Fredrick Shisia said that after the elections, the new government will put in place new administrative and military units that will allow for structured collaboration between Kenya and Somalia's Jubaland.

Shisia said the lack of proper structures had given Al-Shabaab militia group a field day to carry out and execute attacks on both sides.

"Initially the structures were very weak and Al-Shabaab took advantage to carry out attacks at will. But it will not be easy with a stable government," the county commissioner said by telephone.

He also said the new restored security from Jubaland will promote business between the two governments.

The presidential election will be held on Oct. 30 while parliamentary will be held in September.

The current president Hassan Sheikh Mohamed is expected to defend his seat against a host of other candidates who have shown interest in the same seat.
