Kwale - Kenyan police said they had arrested a Ugandan national over terrorism links in the coastal town of Kwale.
Police said the suspect, Mwandego Mohamed, was among Al-Shabaab returnees planning terrorist attacks in the country.
Stephen Muli, Kwale Head of Directorate of Criminal Investigation, said a grenade, a detonator code, electrical detonator and cast booster have been recovered.
The intensified crackdown against the Al-Shabaab terrorist group in Kenya recently is believed to lead to a decline of terror attacks in the country.
Police have blamed Al-Shabaab returnees from south coast for planning to carry out terrorist attacks in the country. The majority of the returnees were opposing the government's anti-radicalization programs.
"Most of them are yet to denounce the group. We are monitoring the operations to avert any terrorist attacks in the region," Muli said.
