WesternA team of security officials led by Administration Police boss Noor Gabow and General Service Unit commandant Douglas Kanja hope to solve the crises.Top security Kenyan officials flew to Malaba border Tuesday morning to solve a building crisis after truck drivers refused to drive on, blocking roads as they protest what they term as harassment by Ugandan authorities. The drivers have blocked roads for days and are demanding intervention from Nairobi. A team of security officials led by Administration Police boss Noor Gabow and General Service Unit (GSU) commandant Douglas Kanja hope to solve the crisis. They were accompanied by almost a dozen mechanics to help in removing the trucks intentionally parked on the roads. A senior officer in the team said the protests amount to economic sabotage and hoped to solve the problem.
