There will be 150,000 employees of national law enforcement agencies called for peace in view of the upcoming government elections scheduled for August 8th. The agents will be used from the official start of the campaign, scheduled for May 29.
This is the largest deployment of military and institutional agents, which Kenya has ever put in place.
"It is necessary - said President Kenyatta - to ensure the proper conduct of the electoral campaign and as a result of the elections !.
As of 29 May, another 30,000 special agents will be also trained, in addition to the staff who will be chairing the seats and 92 magistrates called to monitor the correct course of pre-election disputes and called for judging any jokes that hurt hate, tribal or party fallacies .
In 2013 they were called to guard 95,000 officers less, but this time Kenyatta absolutely avoids any episode of violence.
The whole world looks to Kenya as a developing nation and has overcome the issues that led to post-election violence in 2008.
This international trust must be respected in order to continue to grow and revive past crisis sectors such as tourism.
A special commission has been set up to train the agents and call for an action plan to stem any possible chaos before, during and after the elections.
