Individual countries shouldn’t have the responsibility of fighting terrorism. This is according to Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, who was earlier in Pretoria on a state visit.
He says the issue of security threats and attacks must be dealt with through a multilateral approach. Kenyatta and his counterpart President Cyril Ramaphosa say the fight against terrorism must be coordinated through regional structures.
Presidents Kenyatta and Ramaphosa on terrorism threat in Africa:
With increased terror attacks in Eastern and Southern Africa, peace and security was a major talking point between the two leaders.
Sudan, the DRC, Mozambique and more recently Uganda have experienced a wave of terror attacks. Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni claims the perpetrators have sought refuge in several countries including Kenya and South Africa.
President Kenyatta says in tackling terrorism, nations need to work together.
