Kenya Opens Cyber of its Kind to Fight Child Trafficking, Funded by UK

British High Commissioner Nic Hailey was among the guests who graced the opening of the UK funded cyber center which took place at the Kenyan Police’s anti-human trafficking child protection unit.

The new cyber center is touted as the first of its kind in the continent and was announced by Prime Minister Theresa May during her visit to Kenya.

The wing will play a key role in assisting investigators and other care specialists in tackling issues of serious child abuses in the country.
Nic Hailey pledged the support of the British governments to track foreigners who abuse children in Kenya.

“Online child sex abuse is a global problem with images created and shared across the world, including in Kenya. This new center will help the Kenyan authorities stop this vice and hence protect children from being ill-treated.

We will also work with the Kenya police to ensure that British paedophiles targeting and abusing vulnerable children in the country are brought to justice,” Mr. Hailey said.

On the other hand, DCI Director George Kinoti thanked the British High Commission in Kenya, UNODC and other development partners for their support and help in capacity building, mentorship and resource mobilization.

The Cyber center funded by British government will help in boosting security in the country as it will enable the authorities to have access to the data of children under abuse with the help of data provided by technology firms.

“Online child exploitation is a shocking crime, and we are determined to ensure there is no place to hide for predators who use the internet to share images of abuse across borders, too often with impunity.

“This builds on our ongoing work with Kenya on security and criminal justice – a partnership which has already helped to convict and imprison terrorists in the UK,” said Ms. May.
