Kenya will build wall along Somalia border in terror fight

Kenya has come up with a lasting solution for the terrorism along its borders. The government will this week start constructing a wall along the border with the neighboring Somalia as part of efforts to contain frequent terror attacks, Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery has confirmend.

Mr Nkaissery said they will start in Mandera down to Wajir and erect a wall that will reduce border entries. “Mandera and Bulahawa are almost merged and you cannot tell which is which. Now we want to put up a wall at border point one and close the border. That will reduce the porous border entries into our country,” Nkaissery said.

The Mandera Senator Billow Kerrow has also welcomed the move but argued it is not a long-term solution and more needs to be done to permanently keep the terrorists out of the country.
