Kenyan Govt To Intervene In Somalia Conflict The Kenya government has vowed to intervene in the rapidly declining Somalia crisis. Foreign Affairs Minister Moses Wetang'ula made the remarks after a crisis meeting with envoys from the European Union over the growing control of insurgents, now targeting Somali government officials. Addressing a news conference in his Nairobi office on Friday, Mr Wetang'ula said the meeting had been ordered by President Kibaki following the "security threats to Kenya's strategic interests." Although the Foreign Affairs Minister did not divulge the specific measures being taken to end the insurgency, he hinted at possible military intervention. He said the African Union and the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) was "looking at options" to protect the Somali government from militia attacks. Already airports in militia-controlled regions have been declared ‘no-fly zones', while the ports have been blockaded. This, Mr Wetang'ula said, is meant to cut off supplies to the insurgents. "It will be most inappropriate and inadvisable to do nothing when our national security and regional stability is threatened," he said. "We cannot be by-standers in a situation such as this." Kenya's stake in the Somali conflict is hinged on the insecurity threat posed by the swelling numbers of refugees into the country. Also, the persistent attacks in the high seas by Somali pirates is a source of concern to a government keen on protecting international trade. The remarks come against a backdrop of warnings from the Al Shaabab militia asking Kenya to keep off the affairs of the largely unstable Somalia. However, Mr Wetang'ula dismissed the threats as "not worth our (Kenya's) comment." Soma zaidi hapa Mnaona aje wakuu? Afadhali ingekuwa muungano wa EAC sababu sote tunakuwa affected.
