The government has revived its security strategy across the north eastern region as it seeks to stamp out the resurgence of Al-Shabaab attacks which have been witnessed in the last two months.

Addressing journalists in Garissa County on Monday, Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i said the Nyumba Kumi structure will be reactivated in the counties of Wajir, Mandera and Garissa.

“We are going to reactivate peace committees and introduce a structure of how information will be shared within the security agencies,” said Dr Matiang’i.

INTELLIGENCE GATHERING

He added that intelligence gathering will start from the lowest level of assistant chiefs up to the county commissioners.

“We will be having regular meetings with the chiefs and assistant chiefs across this region,” said Dr Matiang’i.
