Security beefed up at the beaches ahead of Easter
16 April 2014, 10:32
Mombasa - Security in the coastal beaches has been intensified ahead of this year’s Easter Holiday season which kicks off this Friday, Mombasa county commissioner Nelson Marwa has said.
Tourism stakeholders in collaboration with security agents in the coastal region have assured enough security to both local and international tourists who are expected to flock the beaches for the holiday.
The region, which chiefly depends on Tourism, has in the past two months recorded low turnout of international tourists who cancelled their tours following terror threats in the country.
This has forced tourism stakeholders to call for a quick government intervention to save the sector from collapsing.
Mombasa county commissioner, Nelson Marwa insists that criminals who are threatening state peace will be dealt with according to the law and nobody will be left to terrorize innocent Kenyans.
He said more officers dressed in unofficial attires have been deployed all over the entertainment zones to provide security.
Marwa added that more officers have been deployed at the Moi international Airport to intensify operations.
He said the establishment of a modern and fully fledged police station at the Kenya ferry services entrance is among the good measures the police department has employed to deal with insecurity threats.
