Acting Head of the Public service and Secretary to the Cabinet Mr Francis Kimemia has blamed some of the refugees fleeing the Somalia war for increasing incidents of insecurity in the country. Kimemia told a meeting of County Commissioners in Nairobi on Monday,June 25 that  some of the refugees have been sneaking explosives and guns into the main refugee camps that are later used to attack Kenyans.
He challenged Kenyans to work together in ensuring such criminals are checked and tamed in the society.
"Some of these grenades were sneaked into the country through the refugee camps and especially Dadaab. We urge for help from concerned parties to help in addressing the menace," he said.
Kimemia spoke in the wake of increased attacks by suspected remnants of Al-Shabaab militants in the country that have claimed more than two dozens of lives since Kenyan troops crossed to Somalia to crush the rag tag group. The latest incident happened in Mombasa where three people died and 30 others were injured on Sunday in an explosion on a bar. Kimemia said there is no link between the Sunday blast and shooting with the US travel advisory on the Coastal city over threats of terrorism.
"What happened in Mombasa was just a coincidence and no link with the US alert issued on Friday. We need concerted efforts to be able to contain these attacks all the time," he said.
He told the commissioners to ensure peace and security prevail in their areas of jurisdiction arguing, Kenya has the capacity to contain the criminals behind the increasing attacks.
