NAIROBI, Kenya, May 8 – The Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) leader Kalonzo Musyoka has now asked the country to unite in dealing with security challenges.
He said security should be a collective responsibility of all Kenyans and leaders whether in Government or in the opposition.
“When it comes to security there is neither government nor opposition. We are all in this together,” he said through his twitter handle.
Musyoka has urged the security agencies to enhance their operations until the country is free from terror and criminal activities.
“Until we see that we are free from this imminent danger. We can never give in to terror we must remain united,” the former Vice President affirmed.
His sentiment comes as the Government vowed to crush all bad elements within the country following increased cases insecurity in the country.
The opposition has earlier been accused of not providing alternatives in dealing with challenges facing the country, but the CORD leader has said that all people should join the Government in its war against crime.
Musyoka cautioned that the numerous attacks targeting innocent Kenyans should not cause either tribal or religious division among the citizens.
“This barbaric incident will not break us nor deter our strong determination to overcome those who don’t mean well for Kenya,” he stated.
The country has encountered numerous attacks, with Nairobi and Mombasa being hit in the past weekend.

The Deputy President said security agents were working around the clock to achieve that objective.
“When caught they will face the full force of the law. The Government is committed to the security of all Kenyans. We shall continue to do everything within our powers to protect lives and property,” he said.
He assured that the government had not reneged on its responsibility to protect its citizens and would do so to the best of its ability.
