Director of IGAD Center of Excellence urged legislators across East Africa and the Horn to allocate sufficient resources for counterterrorism and extremism.

The Director, Simon Nyambura, reiterated member states to collaborate closely and exchange information to combat violence and terrorism effectively.

Terrorism and extremism present significant challenges in the East Africa region. In response to the formidable challenges posed by terrorism and extremism in East Africa, IGAD convened a high-level regional meeting with legislators from Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, and Uganda.

Addressing the high-level regional meeting, Deputy Speaker of Ethiopian House of People’s representatives, Lome Bedo highlighted the importance of integrating anti-extremism efforts into policy frameworks. She also stressed the crucial role of gender inclusion.

Like Lome, Simon Nyambura underscored the importance of gender inclusion in tackling violence and extremism, urging legislators to prioritize it for enhanced effectiveness.

Simon also asked member states to collaborate closely and exchange information to combat violence and terrorism effectively.

Legislators drawn from member states launched parliamentary coccus network in a fight against violence and extremism.
