In a press briefing held at their premises in Mombasa the Human Rights organization drew attention to a number of security concerns which they believe the government has turned their focus away from.
Yusuf Abubakar, Director of Haki Africa, highlighted the prevalence of terrorism in the Lamu and Tana River regions and underscored the role of skyrocketing living costs and youth unemployment in exacerbating insecurity.
The recent decision by the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) to hike fuel prices in Kenya has sent shockwaves through the lives of ordinary Kenyan citizens. Just three days after the announcement, the ripple effects of this increase are being felt far and wide.
