MCA wants security in Mombasa markets intensified

21 May 2014, 17:24 Harrison Mbungu

Mombasa - Security agencies in Mombasa County have been urged to beef up security, this comes less than a week after 10 people were killed in twin blasts at Gikomba market in Nairobi.

Kongowea market, which serves the entire coastal region, needs constant security surveillance, Kongowea Ward representative, Jabez Oduor has said.

According to Oduor, the current state of security in the facility is not of required standards.

He said the government should put proper measures in place to address terrorism.

"There should be some officers who are based in the market; check on goods entering the market should also be done thoroughly," he added.

The legislator said the recent terror attacks in the coast have directly impacted the performance of the market that supplies goods to the tourist hotels in the region.

Last week over, 700 tourists were evacuated from the coastal region after the West issued travel advisories to their citizens, a move that has led to massive job losses by thousands of workers in tourist hotels.

In a span of one week, over 4 000 workers were laid off by their respective hotels operating within the region.
