  • Description

    A STEPPED UP CAMPAIGN AGAINST SECESSIONIST TRIBESMEN IN KENYA'S NORTH-EASTERN REGION IS EXPECTED FOLLOWING THE DECLARATION OF A STATE OF EMERGENCY ON NEW YEAR'S EVE. THE REGULATIONS GIVE POLICE AND SECURITY FORCES SPECIAL POWERS TO DEAL WITH ARMED RAIDERS WHO HAVE STAGED MORE THAN 30 ATTACKS ON GOVERNMENT POSTS AND VILLAGES SINCE MID-NOVEMBER.

    SINCE MID-NOVEMBER THE SITUATION ON THE KENYA-SOMALI BORDER HAS CAUSED A SERIOUS RIFT BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES AND KENYA HAS MOVED 500 TROOPS TO THE REGION TO HELP COPE WITH THE SITUATION.

    IN THE ATTACKS BY THE SECESSIONISTS, OR SHIFTAS AS THEY ARE KNOWN LOCALLY, THREE CIVILIANS HAVE BEEN KILLED AND 18 WOUNDED WHILE SECURITY FORCES LOSSES HAVE BEEN PUT OFFICIALLY AS TWO DEAD AND 13 WOUNDED.
