During the meeting the DPP and DCI will enlist the help of the top U.S agency to fight corruption and money laundering.

Reports by the Standard newspaper stated that corruption, counter-terrorism, organised crime, drug trafficking, human trafficking and intelligence sharing will be the main focus.

DPP Haji stated that the US AG’s office had invited them for the trip to share many issues that affect both countries.

Collaboration with U.S

We will be discussing many issues including graft. You know the FBI is under AG’s office in the US and we are scheduled to meet top detectives there to share various issues,” the DPP said.

Last year, the DPP met with officials from the FBI where they discussed areas of collaboration focusing on capacity building.

In 2017, the government extradited two sons of slain drug baron Ibrahim Akasha and two foreigners to the US to face drug-related charges for directing a heroin trafficking ring from Mombasa.

The US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) spent years infiltrating the “Akasha organisation,” which it alleges is a major smuggling operation connecting the poppy fields of Afghanistan to the cities of Europe and the United States.
