The number of Kenyan youth joining terror groups such as Al Shaabab and Islamic State in Somalia (ISIS) has greatly reduced, the government has said.

According to the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights, the number of Kenyan youth who are missing has declined and fewer families are complaining about missing relatives.

Speaking to journalists during a three-day workshop on non-violent approach to countering extremism KNCHR CEO Bernard Mogesa said rehabilitated youth and returnees still face stigma and rejection from communities and locals.

“There is a need for integration and inculcation of values in their lives that will make them feel loved and appreciated by the community, irrespective of their status,” Mogesa said.

They still view them as a threat and people who cannot be changed into better citizens.

He urged the government to ensure the youth are engaged, saying that joblessness pushes them to join terror groups. Some families have complained that their relatives who voluntarily return and surrender to the police disappear and are found murdered.
