Peace actors urged to embrace joint planning and execution of activities

State and non-state entities have been urged to embrace joint planning and execution of peace building interventions.

Speaking during a forum to evaluate past interventions and chart a path toward enhancing peace and security in the county, Director for Peace and Reconciliation Titus Lokorikeju said pooling resources would enhance emergency response and improve reactions to early warnings of conflict escalation.

The forum was supported by the International Organization for Peace Building (INTERPEACE), whose objective is to coordinate all actors working to promote peace building in the county.

He highlighted the importance of unity and collaboration in achieving peace. His call for coordinated efforts, inclusion of all stakeholders, and effective use of resources were echoed by others working towards peace in the region.

Turkana central Deputy County Commissioner Thomas Siele expressed the National Government’s commitment to combating insecurity issues in Turkana South and Loima Sub-counties.

He stressed on the importance of involving local Administrators, elders, and communities to create effective homegrown peace solutions.

He added that the National Government had beefed up security capacities in the most disturbed and dangerous crime zones along the Riverine.

The forum brought together participants from various sectors, including the national government’s administrative wing, representatives from non-governmental organizations, and civil society organizations.
