What they said: Kenyan security agents on Obama visit

28 July 2015, 15:19 William Korir

Nairobi - Not only Kenyans were wowed by the visit of US President Barack Obama. Security agents were too.

It was a momentous visit by the first sitting US President to visit Kenya and it showed especially in terms of the security presence in the country, a story that was well documented.

Over 10,000 police officers were placed in Nairobi to ensure Obama's visit went smoothly, and some of those were placed under instruction of Secret Service agents.

News24, over the course of the weekend spoke to several Kenyan officers who too were wowed by the amount of security Obama received.

" It was interesting and in my view a bit too much, but I understand them," a GSU Recce squad officer said.

" We were placed under the command of several secret service agents who led the way in the arrangements. They were friendly and it was nice to see their professionalism," the officer stated.

Others felt that Kenya was far safer than the security presence that was placed for Obama.

" I know that it was Obama but truth be told, Kenya is far safer than it they showed but we had a job to do and we did it well," the officer stated.

Others were happy to learn from the whole engagement.

" The lesson here is that we should secure our country so that next time we do not need to do this much to host a global leader," the officer believes.

It is estimated that the operation to secure Obama cost the US taxpayer as much as USD 50 million.
