Closure of Coast hotels sees thousands lose jobs

28 May 2014, 12:32

Mombasa - The Kenya Association of Hotel Keepers and Caterers (KAHC) Tuesday announced the closure of more than 20 hotels at the Coast following the recent terror attacks and the issuance of travel advisories against Kenya by Western nations.

According to KAHC, the advisories and attacks have scared away tourists leaving close to 7000 hotel staff jobless, The Standard reports.

KAHC also said that a number of international conferences have been cancelled or postponed hence making it difficult for the industry to thrive.

More than 600 British tourists who were on holiday were evacuated from Mombasa after Britain issued a travel advisory warning its nationals to stay away from the coastal resorts.

There were reports that Britain had issued travel advisories against Kenya but the British High Commissioner to Kenya, Christian Turner denied the reports saying that the advisories only targeted Mombasa and not other parts of the country.
