Barely two weeks after the United Kingdom gathered critical intelligence regarding impending terror attacks in Uganda, and yesterday's ultimate bombing incident in Kampala that left at least two people dead, the East African region's susceptibility to terror attacks has risen threefold but Kenya is not taking any chances.
In a bid to build its capacity in countering the tricky terrorism threats, the National Police Service under the ministry of interior and coordination of national government dispatched a section of its personnel to Spain for specialised training in counterterrorism at Guardia Civil Training Academy in Longrono, one of the best training establishments in the country and Europe.
The technical and highly specialised training according to the National Police service was collaborative and necessitated by the ever dynamic nature of terrorism across the globe.
In the course of training, Kenyan security personnel were content being familiarised with latest technology and tactics in counterterrorism strategy and management which will be critical in the event Kenya faces any terror related threats in future.
"....This training is one of the many numerous exercises undertaken by National Police service officers geared towards the protection of our citizens...." Read part of the statement from the police service.
The service which is bestowed with the role of securing the citizenry within the Kenyan jurisdiction further urged members of the public to be vigilant and report any suspicious activities or persons since it's only through sharing such critical information that a lot will be achieved in terms of securing the country.
