Al Shabaab threat sees major function shut down

28 November 2014, 15:24 Eugene Odanga

Nairobi -  In an unfortunate turn of events, Beachlife 2015 has been cancelled due to issues of insecurity at the coast.

This comes as a shock for the thousands of revelers who had planned on making the trip to the Coast during this festive season to usher in the New Year.

The news broke after one of the event’s organizers Rizwan wrote a lengthy update expressing his deepest regret for the inconvenience.

“Due to the security situation at the coast we have been forced to cancel Beachlife 2015 in Diani and move our New Year’s Eve event to Nairobi.”

He then added “After assessing our normal venue in Diani, as well as numerous other potential venues at the beach and doing a comprehensive risk assessment with our security advisers, sponsors, stake holders, and service providers, we have come to the unfortunate conclusion that having a party at the coast this NYE is not safe. We would not be able to realistically stage and deliver Beachlife 2015 to the scale, quality and safety levels as we have done for all these years. We FULLY understand that this will be very sad news for our fans who have come to expect the very best NYE party at the beach.”

He however gave Nairobians good news confirming that the event had been moved to Nairobi, and they were finalizing on the details. The beach life has been replaced by the Sundance festival, which should be the biggest New Year’s Eve party in the country. More details will come out in the coming days as we lead up to the end of the year.
