In the fight against Al-Shabaab, it’s good to have friends
Over the years I’ve traveled extensively in both Uganda and Kenya. During my land and air travels in both countries I’ve always noticed a stark contrast in their respective approach to security. I’m a mere observer; not a security policy/equipment expert. There are many political, geopolitical, operational, and factual reasons why some of the comparisons that I will make don’t matter.
I’m not here to compare Uhuru vs. Musevini governing styles nor the good or bad policy behind their internal/external security operations. Some of what I will mention is gathered from Wikipedia and the internet in general, but as you will see, it’s a discussion worth having after the continual failures of the Kenyan government from Westgate to Garissa.
