Kenya: DCI strikes agreement with two European countries in fight against terrorism

The DCI on Tuesday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with United Kingdom and Northern Ireland on acquiring new equipment to be used to fight terrorism.

The unit, is set to get crime scene investigations kits that will be used during anti-terror operations.

DCI boss George Kinoti noted that the deal will help enhance security in the country.
