FBI Visits Kenya To Discuss Transnational Crime

Two senior officials from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) have arrived in Kenya for consultation with the government on countering transnational crimes.

FBI’s Assistant Director of the Counterterrorism Division Robert R. Wells, met with Director of Criminal Investigations Amin Mohamed on Friday morning.

Wells, who was accompanied by his colleague Leonard Williams, visited the DCI boss at his Mazingira complex offices along Kiambu Road.

In a statement, Amin said the conversation between the three focused on enhancing the relationship between the two agencies in the fight against transnational organized crimes and more specifically terrorism and violent extremism.

“While exploring ways in which we can further strengthen our collaboration, the high-ranking FBI officials also acknowledged the country’s efforts in the fight against organized crimes not only in Kenya but across the African region,” DCI said.

On his part, Amin thanked the FBI for the long-standing relationship enjoyed by the two agencies that had benefited both agencies in the execution of their mandates.

Amin noted that FBI had previously sponsored and facilitated capacity development programmes aimed at improving the investigative and professional capacity of DCI officers in dealing with transnational organised crimes.

The two FBI directors also visited the DCI National Forensic Laboratory launched in June last year.

Kenya has in recent months heightened surveillance to counter terrorism in the country.
