United Kingdom through its Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) on Monday September 14th revised a travel advisory to Kenya.

The advisory advises against all but essential travels to areas of Kenya that border Somalia. Among them recently included areas in the Boni Enclave; Garissa County, Lamu County and areas north of the Tana River in Tana River County where the antiterrorism operation was launched last week and the Eastleigh area in Nairobi.

Kenya safari destination including national parks, game reserves, conservancies and beach resorts are exempted in the advisory. FCO exemption of the tourist destination and limiting the advisory areas bordering the Al Shabaab infested Somalia exudes confidence in the security in Kenya.

The advisory coincides with the launch of the #OperationLinda Boni which is an all-inclusive counterterrorism operation edged at flashing out Al Shabaab from the vast Boni Forest. Additionally in a gazette notice by in Kenya, Kenyans were also advised to avoid all but essential visits to the Boni Enclave during the same period the operation was taking place.

Foreigners British Citizens notwithstanding will require an eVisa applied before travelling to Kenya in intensified security measures in Kenya in place of the manual visa obtained upon arrival.

I can guess a Briton terrorist is among the terrorists in either of the areas mentioned; thats why Britain is able to track communication btwn him & other terrorists. Instead of issueing travel advisories, why cant Britain share the information with Kenyan authorities b4 the terrorists attack innocent pple.

nonsense! ! we’re used to your travel advisories .Still that won’t deter the Pope visiting plus uncountable American music artists lined-up to visit Kenya, not forgetting your PM too is slated to visit.
