Nairobi - Kenya is safe as holiday destination, Tourism Minister Najib Balala has said.
In an exclusive interview with The Standard, the Minister urged all tourists both visiting and on holiday not to panic.
Balala said that the travel ban that was issued by the French embassy is restricted to Lamu and not the entire country. This comes five days after the kidnapping of a French tourist, Marie Dedieu in Lamu.
He added that the government has beefed up security in and around Lamu Island to ensure that all tourists and residents are safe.
