The study was done mainly to find out the effects of the various movements and activities that take place along Kenya's national borders. The key focus was on the consequences of these activities on Kenya's national security. This was done mainly through analysis of secondary data though primary data from relevant officials was also sought. The effects were found to be numerous and far reaching. They include illegal immigration, terrorism advancement, smuggling, ethnic conflicts and the proliferation of the trade in small arms and light weapons. Recommendations from the study include increase in the number of control points, recruitment of more border control officers, better terms of service for the officers, the provision of relevant tools and technology that will facilitate border management and increased intelligence sharing among relevant agencies .
