Governor lauds tourists for ignoring travel advisories

02 June 2014, 17:43

Nairobi - Nakuru Governor Kinuthia Mbugua has urged tourists to visit the country and disregard travel advisories, saying that by upholding them vilifies terrorists.

The governor was speaking Sunday in his county while addressing a group of tourists on their way to the Maasai Mara National park.

He insisted that by not leading normal lives, Kenyans and indeed tourists are handing the terrorists the upper hand.

" I think that by staying away from some places and by also not leading normal lives, we give terrorists the upper hand, he said.

" They are trying to stop our lives being as normal as possible and so we must not allow that, he added.

He did insist that his county government is working as hard as possible with the police to ensure that the level of security in Nakuru is at its highest.

" We are working hard in conjunction with the police to ensure that things are as normal as possible, he added.

Kenya has been hit with travel advisories by several European countries that has threatened to derail the tourism sector.

Over 10,000 people are said to have lost their jobs in the country as the industry grapples with lack of customers.
