Wajir County Woman Representative Fatuma Gedi has called on the national government to speed up a rescue operation for the two abducted Cuban doctors.

Speaking during the 'Firi Firi' Festival in Eastleigh, Nairobi County on Saturday, Gedi asked the government to do everything that will ensure the safety of the Cuban medics.

She said the national government has the machinery to track down the abductors to there possible hide-outs.

"We are praying for the abducted Cuban doctors and urge the government to do everything to ensure they are rescued," Gedi said on Saturday.

The Woman Rep condemned the abduction by suspected Al-Shabaab militants noting that Kenyans must unite against terror agents.

She also pointed out that terrorism remains the biggest threat to development in the North Eastern region.

"Terrorists want to create fear and destabilize development and as Kenyans, we must stand united against them," said the legislator who further urged the national government to deploy more security forces to the borders with Somalia to hunt down terror agents and their sympathisers.

Rescue operation for the two Cuban doctors who were abducted in Mandera Town on Friday by suspected Al-Shabaab militants is on top gear.

It is suspected that the doctors might have been crossed over to Somalia.

Following the incident, the national government re-called back to Nairobi all Cuban doctors in Wajir and Garissa counties.
