President Uhuru Kenyatta held talks with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson with wrestling terrorism among the topics on the discussion table. The meeting between the UK Prime Minister and Kenyan president at 10 Downing Street comes on the heel of another Al-Shabab onslaught in the eastern part of the country.
Kenyatta and Boris Johnson agreed to cooperate in the fight against terrorism and extremist tendency. Kenyatta stressed “These criminals have continued to cause harm to our people and it is about time we combined forces to fight back,”
The two leaders did not further breakdown on the relationship to combat extremism and commentators in Kenya are insinuating options like; Intelligence; buying military arsenal or exchanging ideas among options.
Kenya has been a target of terrorism attacks in recent times, particularly from Al-Shabab militants.
Kenyan police on Monday said at least three people were killed in the recent
Al-Shabab extremists in the eastern part of the country.
The two leaders also discussed UK-Kenya trade ties with a commitment from the European nation to strike deal with the East African country “We are doing well on renewable energy and certainly we would like to partner with you,” PM Johnson told President Kenyatta on Tuesday.
