Mulyungi is also urging the government to consider equipping Kenyan police with modern ammunition, to enable them to effectively protect the country in the wake of attacks.
Mwingi North MP Paul Nzengu who also spoke on the matter has urged the government to include lessons on patriotism in the school curriculum, claiming that lack of patriotism is what is making Kenyan youths to fall in the traps of radicalization.
