Security at its tightest as Kerry makes Nairobi tour

04 May 2015, 18:48 William Korir

Nairobi - The US secretary of State is a high ranking official and it was obvious to see as his security detail went to work.

The US secretary of State is not ranked as high in terms of security as President Barrack Obama or his deputy Joe Biden, but his position as more or less the third in line in government and the leader of business, his security is just as important.

Whenever he went in Nairobi, there was a visible contingent of US marines, Secret Service agents as well as Kenya's own elite Recce squad, which has overseen the security operation from the local point of view.

Kerry's team though has been in Kenya the last few weeks and in conjunction with the US embassy in Nairobi, taken care of his security arrangements.

" There was an advance team in Kenya as there usually is wherever the Secretary of State goes," a US embassy official that did not wish to be named told News24.

" We have secret service, then the US marines and other special operation experts taking care of the trip and its logistics. We also have added input from the Kenya police," the official added.

The official intimated that the number of security officials handling Kerry's visit from the US side number upto over 70.

And with president Obama to come to Kenya in July, that one is bound to be even bigger.

" The president is a different case. The security levels change drastically and you will see more and more officers when he comes around, the official added.

Kerry is in the country on a two day visit.
