US issues Kenya travel warning

07 April 2014, 10:13

Nairobi - The United States has issued a travel warning to its citizens against visiting Kenya due to the recent terrorist attacks and general insecurity in the country.

The US Department of State has told its citizens in Kenya and those planning to visit the East African country to evaluate their personal security situation in light of continuing and recently heightened threats from terrorism and the high rate of violent crime in some areas.

The statement advised that the levels of risk varied throughout the country.

It also said that the advisory had been informed by potential terrorist threats against American establishments, Western, and Kenyan interests in the country.

It is yet to be known whether the advisory is going to affect tourism to Kenya from the US and other Western countries.

The last time the US issued a travel advisory on Kenya was in 2007 after political mayhem sparked by post-election violence.

Meanwhile, it is a week since explosions happened in Nairobi killing six and wounding several people.

Security has since been beefed up in the city while police officers have been searching the Eastleigh neighborhood.  Several arrests have been made in the operation that has gone on for almost a week.

“Terrorist acts can include suicide operations, bombings – to include car bombings - kidnappings, attacks on civil aviation, and attacks on maritime vessels in or near Kenyan ports,” the US Department of State said.
