Kenya releases Obama arrival times by mistake

22 July 2015, 09:19 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - It has been revealed that the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority KCAA might have jumped the gun in releasing the arrival times of US President Barrack Obama into the country.

KCAA officials, Tuesday wrote to all airlines and travel firms in the country, informing them that the airspace will be closed at certain times.

It said in the statement that the airspace would be closed between 7.45pm- 8.35pm Friday, which is set to be Obama's arrival time.

It further said that the airspace will also be closed between 5.05pm- 5.45pm on Sunday, the day the US president is expected to leave.

According to security agencies in the know, the move caught the organizers of Obama's trip by surprise.

" It is early to announce his arrival times and it should be discreet but the information has been leaked, " a source close to the organisation told News24.

" It is not damning but this is information that is usually not released at all so it is a big surprise to see it leaked out this early in the day," the source added.

Details such as where Obama will sleep when he visits and other intimate details are likely not to be known.

" For security purposes those will not be released and will likely not be known until after he leaves," the source added.

Obama will be in the country to co host the Global Entrepreneurship Summit GES as well as hold bilateral talks with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
