Causes And Effects Of Insecurity In Kenya

causes and effects of insecurity in kenya


Insecurity is always the key for a country to survive and focus on its economy, the Kenyan Insecurity started during the time of bomb blast that was in the year 1998, Mugiki killings, Post-election violence, cattle rustling and the current killings of Al shaabab. Insecurity is a big challenge to the government and entire society. Food security and HIV has been in the country for quite some time now, the country has put measures of managing and stopping the spread of infectious diseases. Women and children in slums face problems of lacking access to clean water and being raped.

In human beings, security is the most precious thing because it gives peace of mind, when the insecurity cases increase people live discomfort life and in fear. Robbers also interfere with the security may be in a family or in a business, robbers do anything when they get a chance; taking peoples valuables and also messing them up through raping and hurting them physically. The victims’ consequences may either be psychological or physical.

The rate of insecurity in Kenya has increased, most people are not yet answered as in what is causing all these killings and why. The Kenyan police always try their best to keep peace but it fails when the citizens are not cooperating. The citizens should know the law very well and be aware when they are going against the set laws, Kenyans should try keeping peace and preaching it. Most insecurity cases are caused by hate and incitement through hate speech. The people with owning guns should have license, most gangsters own illegal weapons which they use to accomplish their mission. All the police men should return their gun after being sacked or in case of retirement. Kenyans should report any suspicious group which may be having evil plans to the society. Politics is another source of security among Kenyans; politics raise the issues of tribalism which later bring hate among Kenyans, post-election violence was caused by hate among Kenyan tribes. Kenyans should be made aware that humanity comes before politics and people should not lose lives due to silly reasons just because they belong to a certain tribe and support a certain political party. During post-election violence innocent people lost lives even minors who did not even have a voting card and did not even know the importance of voting. A media law should be passed to all the media stations to always preach and teach peace and avoid any hate statements which might bring mental violence to Kenyans which they might later implement it through actions.

The issue of Al- shabaab seems to be more based on the group’s belief but it does not have any political attachment. Murdering people is their game and Kenyans should just be careful while in various gathering. Most people have lost life through grenade attacks in churches, entertainment halls and shopping malls. Kenyans should put up security measures even in their places of stay. Unemployment should not be a reason for committing crime, citizens should take it as a challenge to think harder and start their own projects.
