Terrorism is increasingly becoming one of the major issues that Kenya and Uganda have had to contend with in recent years. Whilst the two countries have responded through counter-terrorism efforts, there is more that needs to be done. It is our view here that the major weaknesses of counter-terrorism measures in Kenya and Uganda in particular and the East African region in general have been the inability to consider the fundamental root causes of terrorism in the region. It is the role of the different governments to understand terrorism still continues in the two countries.
