NAIROBI – RAMPANT acts of terror in Kenya and major crimes committed in other African cities are set to be a thing of the past following the deployment of state-of-the-art technology in the East African country.

Huawei Technologies, the Chinese-headquartered multinational networking and telecommunications company with a footprint in Kenya, has rolled out its first security solutions in Kisumu, Mombasa and the capital Nairobi.

The “Safe City” initiative, as the name implies, is envisaged to address such challenges as insurgency as well as the violation of traffic rules and regulations and other crimes prevalent in major cities.

Huawei Technologies Enterprise Business Group Vice President (responsible for government and public utility sector), Edwin Diender, says such solutions will subsequently enhance Kenya’s economy, particularly by tackling the challenges hindering the growth of the tourism industry, long the backbone of East Africa’s biggest economy.

The Islamic militant Al-Shabaab has over the years carried out terror attacks in Kenya, much to the hindrance of tourism fulfilling its potential.

“From an economic point of view, Huawei solutions are boosting Kenya’s tourism industry by providing security,” said Diender in an interview with CAJ News in Nairobi at the Huawei Africa Summit.

“”Recently, the United States President Barak Obama came to Nairobi and went without any security breaches,” he added.

“Similarly, the Roman Catholic’s Pope Francis also visited without any security incidents.”

There had been tragic incidents before including the terror attack at the upmarket Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi where unidentified gunmen killed at least 76 people and wounded more than 175 others.

Al-Shabaab extremists claimed responsibility for the incident as retribution for Kenya’s military deployment in the group’s home country of Somalia.

It is envisaged the Safe City initiative will halt such acts.

“This relies on broadband but have successfully migrated from 3G to 4G, sharing High Definition (HD) videos to shape the industry, ” Diender said.

The solutions are anchored on HD cameras with the ability to track would-be criminal suspects in cities before providing content managed system.

It enhances mobile policing.

In instances where there is no street lighting, the cameras always rely on flash technology to enable monitoring.

The technology by Huawei also boasts Visualised Long Term Evolution (V-LTE) Broadband Trunking with more than 200-metre range video, deployed in streets, malls and factories to counter crime.

The deployment is then linked to the central command where all activities will be monitored.

Some solutions offer video cloud based ‎intelligent analysis with video surveillance boasting capacity to capture and enable face recognition.

There is also intelligence led policing through big data.

“‎GPS (Global Positioning System) is there to locate, collect data and receive such useful information. The most important thing is that information gets there right on time,” said Diender.

The Huawei executive says the company has the latest offering in technology to play a part in addressing insecurity issues.

“We provide cloud solution – put it in a single platform, then deploy it.”

He says the Safe Cities offering will be expanded from security to address health challenges in the country.

‎Addressing journalists at a different platform, Huawei Chief Executive Officer for Kenya, Dean Yu, said previously criminals were not deterred from committing offences aware it would be difficult to capture them.

“Before we deployed our solutions, criminals (people) were not scared committing any crime in the cities,” said Yu.

“After our deployment, those wanting to commit crime fear doing so because they will be captured by our system. Most importantly, when tried in any court of law, there will be overwhelming evidence to nail them of their offences.”

Rose Moyo, Rose Moyo, Huawei Technologies Wireless Director for South Africa, also speaking in Nairobi, disclosed following its successful rollout in Kenya, the Safe Cities project will later be introduced in South Africa.

It will be rolled out in the major cities of Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg.

  1. spiniciao!be', in rete si trovano informazioni più vicine alla verità di quante non se ne trovino al telegiornale…volevo precisare che mantenere il giusto distacco non significa fingere che tutto stia andando bene.piuttosto significa essere consapevoli che le cose vanno male, ma trovare ugualmente tanti motivi per essere felice come la persona che ti stava accanto.buona vita!sara

  2. Jeg har lyst til at male, alle møblerne i nye forfriskende farver. Og lige før, da solen stod højt på himlen, og lige ind af vores køkkenvinduer, må jeg sande at en god gang rengøríng også er tiltrængt.Vi napper i stedet for en tur på Frederiksberg skøjtebane:)))Stine

  3. Hallo, das ist schön, dass es jetzt diese Singlebörse gibt. In kostenlosen Singlebörsen besteht leider oft das Risiko, dass sich Fakes einschleichen und ihren Missbrach treiben.Wegen der besonderen Lebenssituation – mangelndes Selbstbewusstsein, depressive Stimmung, fehlende soziale Kontakte – ist eine Singlebörse mit psychologischen Fachleuten eventuell sinvoller. Und ein sozialverträglicher Beitrag eine gute Alternative.Doch es kann jeder für sich selbst entscheiden, ob er oder sie die kostenlose Singlebörse nutzt oder die und psychologischer Unterstützung.

  4. Beauty of a nighty, you would never guess! far too lovely to hide away to go to bed in!Who would has throughout the weather would be this nice when it's nearly October? Not that I am complaining, it's great.Loving the a to z. Probably cause I'm a little nosey too.X x

  5. Yeah … ‘Heart-Shaped Box’ is a damn fine novel. A page-turner, by God. Good work, Joe.Call me crazy, but I was kinda groovin’ on Kevin Bacon in the leading role. He’s gotta be old enough to play Jude, and he’s got some chops on the ax, too.Give him some long black hair – a few threads of gray. Give him a good old Jesus-beard. Bang! You got yourself a rock star.

  6. Mach: ich mache schon ordentlich Werbung für den Blog…und die Zugriffszahlen liegen deutlich über allen Erwartungen. Allerdings zeigen auch andere mehr oder weniger interaktive Instrumente wie etwa die Forums-Funktion im Stud.IP, dass leider nur wenige Studierende davon Gebrauch machen. Daher meine Bitte, sich persönlich und oft bzw. regelmäßig per Kommentar oder Anmerkung zu beteiligen. Dann wird das eine runde Sache.

  7. Thanks, Kiri. I thought I had dengue in Indonesia. Turns out I was just being pathetic and had a virus…I think the thing with avoiding docs is that the typical rule with a tummy bug is leave it 48 hours, which I did here. In future, given Zac has no body fat to burn, I’d probably only give him 36 hours before going to the docs.Me? I’d love to have a 48 hour tummy bug and lose a few pounds…

  8. Bien tu vois il avait pas tous les critères physiques mais je suis allée pour l’ouverture en me disant il est plus grand que moi, donc à voir.ET je trouve ca pas pire parce que là j’ai connu les 2 extrêmes, le gars beige et le gars trop wild pour moi, reste a trouver un in between dans lequel je serais à l’Aise.

  9. I follow you via blogger and bloglovin' 🙂 Why I want to go? Because I have just moved to UK and I am in need of a new wardrobe for the autumn, didn't bring a lot of clothes from Norway. There for doing some reckless spending in forever 21 will do me good! Hope to see you there!

  10. Not to be nit-picky (or pedantic), but…Growing up in the Bay Area, I was taught that it’s actually California sea lions, not the other pinnipeds we usually just call “seals” (aka “earless seals”), that can be trained to balance a beach ball on the nose. *Technically* a sea lion is a type of seal, so I can’t officially quibble with W-Shortz (not that his contact info is available anyway), but I still think the clue for 19-across in today’s Times puzzle could be considered a mistake.

  11. io del commento di teti non c’ho capito un ca… e poi, perchè ci si prende sempre così sul serio? ma soprattutto, chi cacchio è rakudo ka? viva l’ignoranza in questo mondo di radical snobps. sto leggendo adesso basta e sono a pag.96, la solitudine è un tema appassionante, quando finisco ti dico il mio parere

  12. / I think that is among the most vital info for me. And i’m satisfied reading your article. But should commentary on few normal things, The web site taste is wonderful, the articles is actually nice : D. Just right job, cheers

  13. That is not how it is at all. If you have been paying attention Putin is murdering Journalists at a clip of 30 per year ever since he threw the Publishers who disagreed with him in prison. In the US, the reporters go to the White House, to a media press room. They sit down and a spokesperson tells them the governments position, they then accuse the spokesperson of being a liar and then go back to the news room and write a version that suits their fancy, usually consisting of numerous lies and innuendo as prescribed by the Socialists International. +2Was this answer helpful?

  14. I believe avoiding processed foods is the first step to help lose weight. They can taste beneficial, but packaged foods have very little nutritional value, making you consume more to have enough power to get throughout the day. For anyone who is constantly taking in these foods, transitioning to whole grains and other complex carbohydrates will aid you to have more energy while feeding on less. Great blog post.

  15. Eso viene de muy antiguo, exactamente de hace 20 siglos… “ganarás el pan con el sudor de tu frente…” rezaba el castigo con el que apareció el concepto de trabajo y esfuerzo…Si nos lo hubieran pintado como una bendición nos lo tomaríamos de otra manera.

  16. Do not buy a .40 Glock. Mine went KaBoom. The gun was 2 months old and the ammo was new factory (not reloaded-or lead). Glock will not help or replace the gun. I'm saving up to buy another gun..won't be a Glock.

  17. Bonjour,C’est intéressant , puisque l’interface permet de télécharger un fichier texte regroupant tous les liens entrants liés à une même adresse web. Il devient alors possible d’intervenir dessus afin de signaler tous ceux à oublier, de façon à définir la qualité des référents. Une fois les corrections apportées, le fichier peut alors être rechargé vers les serveurs de Google!

  18. Todo fator que estimula a mitose celular (a extensa descamação celular que o listerine causa) é risco para o câncer bucal. No mínimo deve-se realizar mais estudos longitudinais para provar ou refutar o suposto potencial cancerígeno do Listerine (não os estudos ‘patrocinados’ pela empresa) Parabéns Luis Rodolfo.P.S. Não era a Adam’s que fabricava o Listerine?

  19. Jessica, Jessica,! I can’t believe how fast the spell worked.Dr ogogoro My bf was back knocking at my door the day after you did my spell. Please put this up on your site so I can tell everybody if they are trying to decide weather or not to use you for there spells, they definitely should. Dr ogogoro is awesome!!!!! His spells really really really work! Thank you so much

  20. I love the Harley 48, I think it is the hottest stock Harley ever…I've owned a varitey of bikes over my 23 years of riding: from sport to cruisers, including two Sportsters…I love crotch rockets but often talk myself out of riding them, for obvious reasons…I turn 40 this summer and I would love the 48 to be the next bike I buy.

  21. Colecrook – Sorry you are having so many issues. I would try to find a Dr. that is familiar with CES, just to be on the safe side. Ruptured discs are a common cause of CES in many patients. Any time you have disc issues and numbness in your lower body, it’s a good idea to see someone who knows about CES. Now, it’s just a matter of trying to find one in your area. Good luck.

  23. Hi,Some people were recording on video – I expect to post it, once I get it.There is no golden bullet, I was describing how to save development time on relatively similar UI's – for example report parameters screens. Instead of developing manually, to generate.Dynamic solution can be same as static in terms of performance. Because anyway ADF is doing same job for static resources – it loads them on runtime. Same thing can be done dynamically from Java API.Andrejus

  24. Az F-16-os szerintem rossz indok, mert ugye Kanada azért vett kétcsövű gépeket amiért a ami ladikokon is van, mert hatalmas területei vannak és nem túl barátságos környezet. Szóval itt F-18-ok röpködnek.Ellenben az már jó indok, hogy az amik hordozóra szánják, szóval lehet hogy gondoltak arra, hogy jó lenne bele megbízható hajtómű. :-)Tetszik / Egyetértek: 1 Az értékeléshez be kell

  25. Dahling, you look mah-velous! As a 47-year-old denial expert, my idea of hell is putting on a bathing suit. I’m not into pain, so I have successfully avoided them for 8-10 years. Your bravery in rocking a real woman’s body and non-bronzed skin is to be awesome! And you know what? You look great!

  26. Hard to read anything into this, even if the Libs had fielded a candidate. The State Libs have been such a sorry mob for decades, yet 10-20% of the electorate have been able to switch from voting Lab or Nat at State level to Lib at federal level, without apparently schizoidal effects.And on the actual results, turnout was well down – if you were a true Tory, why would you have bothered to turnout? At best Grace/Bligh can say that govts usually suffer a swing against them. A good argument for a ‘none of the above’ option.

  27. Thanks for the video.My take on your mentioning makeup and hairdressing is that it is important to make your appearance as polished as possible for the camera. It’s the same reason you had a pro camera person. This extra effort shows respect for your audience, by eliminating details that would distract and detract from your message.As a dancer I find that the process of applying my makeup before a performance calms me, and reminds me how I want to do my best for my audience. It gets me into my dance persona, and focuses my spirit.I plan to share your message.[]

  33. grazie Replicante…e dire che le maiuscole a inizio frase le ho pure ricontrollate.Il mio grado di fusione in questi giorni è evidentemente qualche tacca oltre il limite, il che mi avvicina pericolosamente agli sgrammaticamenti complottisti 😀

  34. cook up about three pounds of dried pintos every 4 – 6 weeks. I freeze the Seasoned Pinto Beans in 2 or 4 cup containers to use as a side dish or as a base for a meal like this. I buy a 10 pound

  35. जाने क्यूँ हर बीता हुआ हसीं लम्हा लौट आता है वर्तमान में..और दस्तक देता है यादों के दरीचों से..बहुत सुन्दर..

  36. i’m WAAAAY outta … i’m WAAAAY outta shape… too much computer…. I can’t even do 1 of these. is there like a “pre-sit up” that can get me conditioned before doing real sit ups?… like putting my hands on my bottom and guiding myself up slowly? i dunno…. aaaah i’m dying!!!

  37. Time for the bigots to move on….MK Dons have a fantastic ground and superb training facilities. The bright modern City is on the up and is a great place to live and work – and then there's London Road – need I say more!!

  38. Å så lekkert ,en steinmur gjør så mye ut av seg ,,det må jo bli party der,,Så fint du har det og så fine blomster . Nå er det siste innspurt i hagen men høsten er en fin tid å gjøre ferdig små og store prosjekter.Ha en fin dag , Maritklem.

  39. >d’ouvrages ou la ponctuation était absente : à 04:40 | Autant que je me souvienne, dans l’exercice appelé « dictée », la ponctuation était dictée aussi : à haute voix.Il me semble aussi que les enfants apprenaient à lire avec des « ouvrages où la ponctuation est absente », ou plutôt de petits livres sans aucun signe de ponctuation, au tout début .

  40.

  41. Bastardo è troppo poco, non ci sono parole per definire al peggio chi è capace di una infamia simile.È un malcostume che è peggio di tanti altri comportamenti apparentemente più gravi… e che la dice parecchio lunga sul nostro livello di cosiddetta "civiltà".Almeno le pene si sono inasprite, e finalmente c'è la galera per questi criminali.E fortunatamente, qualche volontario che si batte per questa vergogna.

  43. I just read where the Birther Summit has just broadened their$15, 000 challenge to include Bill O’Reilly, Gorge Stephanopoulos, Anderson Cooper, and Chris Matthews. This is the same challenge that was offered to Colin Powell, who has been hiding in his hole and not responding. I can tell the Birther Summit people the same results will be forthcoming from those named above as they received from Powell. Asking these noted journalist to tell the truth is equal to Obama accusing the Pope of being a Muslim !

  44. Big Dick doesn’t have to pull any punches. You’re correct…no agenda.He handled himself very well. I also think his daughter handled herself very well while making the rounds.Off topic, but I believe calling Biden a lier was the truth.Cheney is the man.

  45. A bigger issue maybe the toll on the body to play all these extra day games during a hot, humid, and sunny summer games. I would think there is also dramatic adjustment between getting your batting eye adjusted to sun vs. artificial lights. The important part is the lack of consistency all the day games Cub players have to deal with. It’s time to cut the day games in half it just makes sense.

  46. I simply want to tell you that I’m newbie to blogs and really liked this page. More than likely I’m going to bookmark your blog post . You definitely come with amazing article content. Regards for sharing with us your web site.
