Mandera Peace Building Process

On 7th June, 2017, the Commission in conjunction with Inter-peace organized a meeting with heads of Security agencies in Mandera to discuss the issue of lack of trust between the local population and security agencies based in Mandera County. The consultative phase findings of the project were presented to the stakeholders, along with the audio visual component that touched specifically on the Rule of Law findings. The outcome of the focus group discussion by security heads were partly in agreement with what the community echoed, and promised to look into the underlying issues raised.

Among the findings of the discussion included lack of information sharing, terrorism and extrajudicial killings, lack of local proper representation in the security agencies heads, stereotyping, bribery and extortion.
