Details of Matiang'i meeting with UK Security Minister

High-profile meeting in Nairobi

Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang'i

Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i on Friday met with United Kingdom Minister of State for Security Ben Wallace in London.

The two security ministers discussed the progress of the Kenya-UK Security Compact.

According to a brief from Dr Matiangi's office, the high-level security dialogue was also attended by the Minister of State for the Commonwealth and the UN at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon.

The Interior CS highlighted the January Dusit D2 Al Shabaab attack citing that Kenya's security forces had managed the incident professionally.

"The ministers said cooperation (between Kenya and United Kingdom) has led to successes ranging from improved response to security threats to bursting the smuggling (of) luxury SUVs through Mombasa," the statement from Matiangi's office read in part.

Minister Wallace stated: "There have been productive discussions on counter-terrorism and serious organized crime. Kenya is a key partner in tackling these global challenges."

Only two weeks ago, the UK ministers announced a Sh3.9 billion funding for security and development projects in Africa.
