Kenya's 12th Parliament to host 300 MPs from across the world in Nairobi for 2 days for the Parliamentary Intelligence-Security Forum

Kenya's 12th Parliament will on Monday and Tuesday host over 300 members of parliament from around the world for the Parliamentary Intelligence-Security Forum.

The global forum will be holding its 15th session since it was founded by US Congressman Robert Pittenger in 2014.

"The forum will afford participants the opportunity to share knowledge and build networks on information and intelligence sharing among allies that would assist in addressing common threats shared by all peaceful nations," stated Kiambaa MP Paul Koinange who is also the Chairman of the National Assembly Administration and National Security Committee.

Some of the delegates who have confirmed attendance are from United States, France, Nigeria, Colombia, Germany, Montenegro, Zambia, Malawi, Mexico, Argentina and Djibouti.

National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi and his Senate counterpart Ken Lusaka are expected to address the forum.
