Nkaissery hands Lamu residents Christmas gift

25 December 2014, 17:50 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Newly sworn in Interior CS Joseph Nkaissery has removed the blanket curfew order in Lamu County.

Nkaissery has ordered that the curfew only cover Lamu mainland and not Lamu island as had earlier been effected by Inspector general of police David Kimaiyo.

" Every person residing within Lamu County mainland is directed to remain indoors during the period the curfew orders is in force except under and in accordance with terms and conditions of a written permit granted by the Lamu County Police Commander,'' read part of the statement from Nkaissery.

There has been controversy as to why the curfew has been effected despite the reduction in incidences of attacks on locals in the last couple of months.

There was even a protest march in October and there have been threats to sue Police over the order that has killed any remnants of tourism in the region.

Nkaissery though, sees otherwise.

" It is still overly important that security be retained in the county and until that is achieved in Lamu mainland, it is imperative that the people understand the prevailing conditions and cooperate with the order, he added.

The curfew in Lamu has now been in effect five months.
