Government to decide on Lamu curfew Tuesday

19 October 2014, 18:15 Mbungu Harrison

Mombasa - Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Ole Lenku has said government security agencies are deliberating on whether to lift or extend the ongoing dusk-to-dawn curfew in Lamu that was imposed by Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo three months ago.

Lenku, who was speaking after officialy closing the 29th border administrative conference in Mombasa, said the government will give a directive on Tuesday this week after thorough deliberations.

He said lifting the curfew will be determined by the government and security agencies but not political forces.

“Indications are that there does still exist some threat and the withdrawal will be determined by security and projections on how the situation looks like. What I want to assure Lamu people is that as security agencies, we are looking jointly at the situation in Lamu to confirm that it has returned to normalcy,” said Lenku.

Civil society groups from the coastal region had threatened to sue the IG for what they termed as violation of human rights of Lamu residents.

Haki Africa and Musims for Human Rights groups through the support of Lamu leaders raised concern that the curfew was killing the entire county’s economy.

Kimaiyo ordered the curfew on July 20 following a series of attacks in the region that left over 70 people dead.
