President Uhuru Kenyatta on meeting with Somali Community leaders posted, “This morning, Deputy President William Samoei Ruto and I together with Hon. Aden Duale, Senator Yusuf Haji and Hon. Yusuf Hassan met with members of the Eastleigh Business Community and other elected leaders to discuss insecurity in the country. The Government has entered into a pact with the Kenyan Somali community that will see the community play an active role in combating terrorism threats to the country. Terrorism targeting innocent Kenyans must stop and we have therefore agreed that the top leadership of our security organs will start working with a task force involving businessmen, youth, women and religious leaders from the Kenyan Somali Community that will be instrumental in identifying those involved in criminal activities.”

This is indeed a good approach for many a time a few persons in a community could make a community be looked negatively. Involving communities in their security is considered one of the strongest approach of achieving security. Based on this approach other communities and persons in a settled region should also look at ways to advance the security where they are.  Indeed a security bill that empowers community and sets the working relation between the police, community and governments both county and national for a county and further for a defined area that empowers residents as the first security system would improve security of Kenya.
