The rule of law is critical for a country to function effectively, Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi has said.
Speaking at the 16th Annual General Meeting and Africa Prosecutors’ Association Conference in Mombasa, Mudavadi encouraged participants to take keen look into and develop workable approaches on how technology can be used to track and neuter perpetrators of organised transnational crime and tackle money laundering across borders.
Mudavadi said it is historical that Kenya is hosting the Conference for the first time bringing together representatives from over 40 member countries.
The Africa Prosecutors’ Association was established in 2003 to enhance cooperation between prosecution agencies and authorities in Africa.
APA convenes annually to entrench its objectives and address the growing challenges facing African prosecutors.
The theme of the conference this year is ‘Strengthening Coordination and Cooperation towards Effective cross-border prosecution of transnational organised crime’.
