Operation Dumisha Amani

Operation Dumisha Amani is a joint security venture between the Kenya Army and the provincial administration in the North Rift districts, launched in May 2005 to restore normalcy in an area hitherto dominated by a wave of general insecurity. The genesis of this insecurity was then attributed to rampant cattle rustling amongst the local population.

This security intervention has achieved remarkable improvement and stability in the general security in the area, a development which has restored peace and hope to the general North Rift region. Meanwhile, the Kenya Army has taken a leading role in initiating public utility projects under its humanitarian civic assistance programme.
