Please don't buy that hogwash. It's neo-colonial reasoning. Just last week
(1,2), World Bank President Jim Yong Kim and United Nations
Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon, with a High-level representatives of the
European Union, Intergovernmental Agency for Development, African Union
Commission, the African Development Bank as well as the president of the
Islamic Development Bank Group, Dr Ahmad Mohamed Ali, were in Nairobi in
bilateral talks.

Although vigilance helps, insecurity is everywhere and anybody can be
caught wrong footed. London underground was bombed silly in 2005 (may the
souls of the departed rest in peace), and England authorities were
helpless. Apart from 9/11, US has had more violent gun killings than what
alshabab has ever done to Kenya in the last 10 years.
