THE anti terrorism police unit will soon be restructured to make it more effective in dealing with terror threats.Inspector General of police David Kimaiyo yesterday said ATPU will be streamlined to restore public confidence on it, especially from the Muslim community.
"We want to crackdown on key financiers of terrorism activities in the country. We can only succeed with support from members of the public," said Kimaiyo.
ATPU head Boniface Mwaniki said the planned restructuring is a continuous process that is undertaken regularly."We have an elaborate team of officers who are up to the task," said Mwaniki.
Kimayo's sentiments came as it emerged that British terror suspect, Samantha Lewthwaite alias Ms Natalie Webb, left behind notes indicating her desire to have her children join the Mujahidin.
Samantha escaped a police dragnet in Mombasa last year.
