Government angered by 'unfriendly' travel advisories

15 May 2014, 12:21

Nairobi - The government is unhappy with travel advisories issued against Kenya by western nations over the spate of terror in the country, which it describes as unfriendly.

Foreign Affairs Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho termed the advisories, issued by the United States US, The United Kingdom UK, France and Australia as ‘unfriendly’.

The advisories have been issued as a result of the ongoing terror attacks in the country.

Kibicho insisted that Kenya has cordial relationships with the four countries, including cooperation in the fight against terrorism.

“The advisories are obviously unfriendly acts coming from our partners who have equally borne the brunt of global terrorism and no doubt understand the repercussions of terror menace,” he said.

“Issuance of such travel advisories only plays to the whims of bad elements in the society whose aim is to spread fear and panic among otherwise peaceful people,” he stated.

He did however send a plea to visitors not to be afraid of visiting the country.

“Visitors are assured to utmost security and safety when in Kenya,” he said.

The UK is the latest to issue travel advisories, urging its nationals to avoid unless a must, visits to the coastal City of Mombasa and its environs.
