Kenyans without ID during Obama visit risk arrest

16 July 2015, 09:23

Nairobi - Kenyans will be required to carry their identification documents to escape police swoops during the upcoming Global Entrepreneurship Summit.

Reports indicate that the government plan to deploy about 15 000 police officers who are expected to conduct swoops on streets and estates within Nairobi.

Anybody caught without proper identification documents during this period risks arrest, The Star reports.

Wandering street children will also be kept on check during this period to avoid any security scare to participants in the summit scheduled for July 24-July 26.

Recce squad officers will be working closely with Secret Service agents who will be escorting President Barack Obama for the Summit.

On Tuesday, the US issued a travel alert cautioning its citizens to be on high alert before, during and after Obama’s visit, saying such large-scale events tend to attract criminal elements.
