Kenya will be home to a Joint regional intelligence center that will help coordinate sharing of information on matters security for countries along the Northern corridor.
The Intelligence Center, which will be located in Nairobi’s Karen estate will bring together spies from Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and South Sudan in a bid to combat terror threats, cyber-crime, human trafficking among major security threats within the region.
Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery said that the center will enhance border protection.
“This will include joint training on investigation gathering,” he stated. “We want to come out with solutions of how we can manage security within the Northern corridor.”
Kenyans have always condemned the government as far as intelligence on security is concerned especially in the wake of the rampant terror attacks from the Al shaabab militia and we can only hope the joint intelligence center will rise to the occasion.
