Mombasa police warn those spreading terror texts

12 May 2014, 21:40 Harrison Mbungu

Mombasa - Police in Mombasa County are investigating individuals for allegedly sending illegal terror threat text messages to the public warning them not to attend public places.

In a security meeting convened by Mombasa county commissioner Nelson Marwa and the County police commander Robert Kitur at police headquarters on Monday Morning. The police have received intelligence reports of some criminals suspected to be behind the exercise.

Marwa said police will cooperate with other security departments in the country to bring those involved with the illegal business before being charged in a court of law.

They maintained that security in Mombasa and the entire coast region will be maintained, dismissing claims that the texts messages circulating are not from the police department.

“We want to know the motive of this criminals, There are those spreading texts messages on terror threats, we want to dismiss this and say this is a mere propaganda,“warned Marwa in a press conference held at Mombasa police headquarters.

Marwa has assured tourists, business and the locals that security is tightened despite the terror threats experienced in the past few months.

 He said more police officers have been deployed at the Kenya ferry and services facility. A full fledged police station was introduced at the facility to help intensify security operations.

This happens as the Kenya management installed CCTV cameras at the Kenya ferry Likoni crossing channel to capture both human and traffic insecurity threats. More then sixty thousand commuters use the crossing channels to the island and across to the south coast.
