ACK St. Thomas Girls Secondary School students in Kilifi County explain how to operate the IED detector prototype.

The General Officer Commanding EASTCOM, Major General Ayub Matiiri accompanied by Operation Fagia Msitu Commander Colonel G Marrow visited Kenya Army Forward Operating Bases within Boni Forest to oversee the adaptbility of the newly deployed troops in their respective Camps and evaluate their operational readiness.

During this dry season currently experienced in several parts of the country, including the Boni Enclave, the Multi-Agency task force deployed in the area is centrally providing security escorts to relief food providing organizations, availing fresh water and medical assistance to the local populace as they combat the enemy whose tact remain the use of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) on these convoys.

The prevailing factors to enemy activities in the region is the struggle to control resources including fresh water points, majorly found in Baure. In other IED prone hotspots, the incentive is the inter-clan dispute that provide a window for radicalization and growth of Al-Shabaab sleeper cells. This is not limited to border dispute between Lamu and Garissa Counties and fights amongst the Somalia and Waboni of Bodhei.

Major General Matiiri during a barazas with the soldiers encouraged them to remain steadfast and alert in securing their areas of responsibility. “Do not be deceived by the enemy’s temporary lull, the enemy is still here and he is active,” he further noted that AMISOM achievement in Somalia has further degraded Al-Shabaab.

While in Kilifi, Major General Matiiri visited ACK St. Thomas Girls secondary school to witness the technology behind the modified car into an IED detector and its applicability in the field for security operations. This was one of the girls’ science projects during Kilifi county secondary schools’ competition.

The IED detector vehicle prototype is also designed to offer surveillance capability. Its unique components include, a warning system, mirrors and cameras, night visual devices, radar proximity sensors, bomb detecting systems, a display unit and power system.

Major General Ayub Matiiri commended the students for their innovative ideas and the teachers for their support to realize the students’ vision. “There is no limit to your ability and no problem without a solution if we continue to think harder and deeper.” Said Major General Matiri.
