The government has announced the closure of Kenya’s border with Somalia in Lamu indefinitely in a bid to counter terror attacks in different parts of the country in the recent past.

The closure of the border comes at a time when KDF forces have intensified security operations in the neighbouring country in the fight against Al-Shabaab militants.

Confirming the closure of the border, Lamu County Police Commander Muchangi Kioi said that the border will remain closed until further notice.

He, however, said that security officers will be allowed to access the border as they continue with operations to tame the terror militia groups in Somali.

The residents in the area have also been warned against conducting any form of trade across the border lest they are killed or arrested over the same. Traders who will not adhere to the directive risk losing their licenses or face arrest.

The government also outlawed fishing at the Coast to minimize the activities of the terror militia. The move was compounded by increased cases of human trafficking, sale of fake goods and drug trafficking.

Kioi also said that KDF officers have impounded illegal sugar from Brazil. The security team has since warned traders against conducting business across the border.

“We have already seized at least 10 bags of illegal sugar of Brazilian origin. They were purchased from Somalia by residents in Kiunga. I want to make it clear that it is an offence to engage in any manner of cross-border trade with those from Somalia,” said Kioi.

Hii border ingefungwa zamani. Tungejenga tu wall from Mandera to Lamu halafu tuweke drone, security camera na wanajeshi hapo all along the border. Mtu akikaribia anatwangwa risasi maswali baadaye.
With Matiang'i trust me huo mpaka watakoma tu!

Sidhani kama atapata ushirikiano unaotakiwa kutoka Somalia
Serikali ya nyang'au hapana tambua Somalia. Yaani tusikilize maoni ya watu ambao wanatawala Mogadishu kutoka Nairobi, kwa kuhofia usalama wao. Vikao vya mawaziri na wabunge wa Somalia huwa yanafanyiwa Nairobi. Ukimuona rais Farmajo akitanua tanua misuli jua kwamba anaigiza tu. Yeye mwenyewe ni kibaraka wa rais Uhuru Kenyatta. Akibanwa kidogo analegeza, maanake hata huo urais anaweza akapokonywa muda wowote ule. Tutafanya tutakavyo, kama kawa, kwenye masuala yeyote yanayohusu Somalia, simple plain truth.
