Massive security restrictions ahead of Obama visit to UN

20 July 2015, 17:09 William Korir

Nairobi - The United Nations office in Nairobi has issued stringent security measures ahead of US President Barrack Obama's visit to the country.

In an advisory to staff members, the organization has told its staff not taking part in the upcoming Global Entrepreneurship Summit GES summit to keep off the premises Saturday and Sunday 24 and 25 July 2015 as access to the UN headquarters will be restricted to only those concerned with organisation of the conference.

The move is just one in a number of measures being taken to ensure security is top notch ahead of the summit.

" Please note that access to UNON on Saturday 25 July and Sunday 26 July will be restricted to UN staff members whose presence is related to the organisation of the conference only and who have been accredited to the conference," it said.

" Some access to UNON office spaces may be granted to staff on an exceptional or emergency basis to areas outside of where the conference is being held," it added.

The UN also says that there will be significant traffic disruption, particularly on main routes between Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA), Wilson Airport, through the central business district of Nairobi and towards the UN Office along Limuru Road ,UN Avenue and Gigiri.

" Traffic disruptions are anticipated on 24, 25 and 26 July 2015 along Limuru Road and UN Avenue.

" As of Friday 24 July, checkpoints will be established on routes to UNON. We request staff to carry their UN Passes (and UN Decals in their vehicles if driving) with them at all times and comply with security requests," it added.

The move is in respect to the personalities that will be at the summit and to ensure the safety of all of them is as high as possible.

Obama is expected to offer the key note address in the summit which is being held in Kenya for the first time in Sub Saharan Africa.

Kenya is currently on a high state of security as it welcomes as many as 5,000 delegates for the summit.
