Kenyan president, Uhuru Kenyatta appreciates security forces for their bravery, professionalism and firmness in confronting and neutralizing their enemies.
He said that multi-agency team has already arrested several individuals linked to the attack. As this exercise continues, Uhuru urges all Kenyans to remain vigilant. It will take all of then to fight this demon of terrorism and violent extremism.
All Government agencies and departments, must subscribe to the One-Government Approach policy. I will require all Ministries, departments and semi-autonomous agencies, to embrace the same multi-agency approach under the National Security Council, which is being pioneered with significant success,’’Uhuru Kenyatta said.
Regional Commissioners, will chair the Regional Development Implementation Committee, while County Commissioners will chair, the County Development Implementation Committee. This is meant to increase efficiency, speed of delivery, better utilization of public resources and reduce wastage and gate-keeping,’’he said.
President Kenyatta said all Regional Commissioners, County Commissioners, and Police Commanders must treat gate-keeping, rent-seeking, fraud and misuse of resources as a threat to the unity, well-being and security of their Nation.
The fight against corruption is won or lost daily on the ground, and I expect you to show courage, integrity and resourcefulness to fight it. To enhance the progress made by the integrated Population Registration System (IPRS), my Administration will complete a central master population database, which will be the authentic ‘Single source of truth’ on personal identity in Kenya,’’he said.
The database will however contain information on all Kenyan citizens as well as foreign nationals residing in Kenya. For each registration, the National Integrated Identity Management Systems (NIIMS), will generate a unique identification number that will be known as Huduma Namba.
The County Commissioners, will provide oversight and coordinate the execution of Huduma Namba related activities in the Counties. Regional and County Commissioners are directed to reactivate County Environment Committees, which will be responsible for regulation and protection of all gazetted forests and vital water towers in their jurisdictions.
As Chairs of these committees, you will be held responsible for any cases of environmental destruction and degradation. Regional and County Commissioners must play a crucial role in enforcing the policy of 100% transition from primary to secondary school and ensure that no child is left behind.
County Commissioners must ensure every county has launched and is implementing a “County Action Plan for the Prevention and Countering of Violent Extremism”, and must report on the progress, and collaboration with civil society groups, religious leaders and other stakeholders, to ensure that radicalized Kenyans and radicalizers who present a threat to the security of our people, are quickly detected and dealt with,’’president said.
