Govt bans night church activities in Mombasa

18 June 2014, 09:22 Harrison Mbungu

Mombasa - The government has banned church activities in Mombasa County that are conducted late in the night and without the involvement of security officers for fear of terror attacks.

Mombasa county commissioner, Nelson Marwa has ordered chiefs to carry out scrutiny on churches and bars that operate in late hours of the night without alerting the police.

Marwa however cited that the government will not wait to see people’s lives threatened just because of ignorance, warning all chiefs to be awake and report any insecurity matters to the police.

“We don’t want to interfere with Kenyans’ democratic rights but they should be conducted within the law. Churches are soft targets and we do not want people to land into trouble,” said Marwa.

In a security meeting with chiefs at the Mombasa county headquarters, Marwa has warned that police departments have intensified security operations in the wake of attacks in Mpeketoni Lamu County.

Marwa warned chiefs against sleeping on the job urging them to take personal responsibility and deliver any security information in time to avoid unplanned insecurity threats.

“We want action; we don’t want processes. We are now narrowing down security issues to sub- county level,” Marwa added.

He pointed out that police are investigating bar lodges and hotels to ensure that they do not host criminals.

At the same time, Mohammed Rajab, the regional Kenya Red Cross society coordinator has appealed to Kenyans to donate blood and other items to the victims of Lamu attacks.

The Kenya Red Cross has maintained that operations to will continue to offer psychosocial support to the victims.
