FBI joins Kenya forming a Task Force in Nairobi

Kenyan agents in USA to fight terrorism together

18-02-2020 by redazione

The Federal Bureau of Investigation of the United States of America, universally known by its acronym, FBI, has decided to establish in Nairobi its headquarters in Africa to combat the dangers of international terrorism and particularly that which is formed and nested in the not far away Somalia. For this reason, the American Government has decided to forge an even stronger alliance with Kenya and to begin a collaboration at the level of intelligence.
The first phase of this collaboration will bring 42 young agents of the Kenyan Counterterrorism Unit to the United States for a 12-month internship at the FBI Academy, based in Quantico, Virginia.
During this period the Kenyan policemen will carry out training specifically dedicated to the fight against terrorism of Islamic matrix and will learn the most current international dynamics.
Upon their return, the agents will be assisted by FBI specialists in Nairobi in the new offices of the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) created ad hoc and in the field.
In a press release issued last week by the FBI, it appears that the American intelligence unit began to cultivate this idea in the aftermath of the armed attack on the Dusit D2 Hotel in Nairobi just over a year ago, in January 2019.
Deputy Director of the International Operations Division Charles Spencer expressed his satisfaction with the collaboration between the FBI, the State Department and Kenya.
"The Kenyan operations base will enable the sharing of experience, knowledge and capabilities that will strengthen our common commitment to the fight against terrorism not only in Africa, but around the world," said Spencer.
