10 July 2015, 18:38
Nairobi - Photos of the arrival of President Barrack Obama's convoy into the country are illegal and should not have been taken, the Kenya Airports Authority KAA has said.
Pictures of the 50 vehicle strong convoy were leaked to the media and in the end social media Thursday, with the KAA claiming that it will take action on whoever either took the photos or allowed journalists entry to take the photos.
" KAA has noted with concern images taken at JKIA and are in circulation in the media of President Obama's motorcade," it stated.
" We are in consultation with the security agencies and the respective ground handling company to ascertain how the images were acquired," said the authority Friday on its Twitter page.
The images came just under two weeks before the arrival of the US President on what is expected to be a three day visit.

Whatever action is taken is yet to be announced by the KAA but a source at the authority stated that if there was internal help in the taking of the photos, action will be taken.
" The leak was a breach of trust in as far as the courier service and the KAA is concerned and the matter will be dealt with," the source added.
Obama is set to arrive in the country from 24 July to attend the 2015 Global Entrepreneurship Summit GES.
