No specific threat on Parliament buildings, police say

14 May 2015, 14:44 William Korir

Nairobi - There is no specific threat on parliament buildings to force the closure of roads around the building, police have said.

Central Police OCPD Paul Wanjama says that there has been no specific threat to Parliament but that there was need to raise the alert level.

" There is no specific threat but we are on high alert after the recent incidences of terror. We have seen the need to boost security," he said Thursday.

The move comes a month after the Garissa University terror attack and the arrest of a Senate officer over his alleged links to the Al Shabaab terror group.

Wanjama said that the blocking of the routes which affect the stretch on Harambee Avenue between Vigilance House and Uhuru Highway and also Tumbo Avenue will not change until the terror threat subsides.

" It is for security purposes and unless the threat subsides we will continue to have the level of security high," he added.

The country has raised its terror alert following suggestions that the Shabaab is eyeing more high profile targets within the city.
