Do you believe the state of security in our country [Kenya] is satisfactory?
During the times that I travel to other countries I notice many things; one of the small things I notice is that, in most of these countries, there are no security guards with metal detectors at the entrance of public spaces.
Many of these are ‘developed’/’1st-world countries’ yet they do not have this function that seems to be in every store, mall and public building in Kenya’s capital. Do you think our security system works? I tend to believe it doesn’t and can be made better.
We need to create a nationwide intuitive security infrastructure, one which would [say] pick out the criminal carrying an explosive device way before he assembles it as opposed to having him eventually checked at the door by a guard with zero combat training. The latter being a thing that close to never happens.
Criminologists, IT experts, and security specialists, where at thou? Talk to me.
What are your thoughts?
