Hotel stakeholders from Malindi have asked the international community not to send security alerts or advisories to their citizens against Kenya following the terror attack at Riverside Complex in Nairobi.
The attack that started on Tuesday, 3pm and ended on Wednesday afternoon left 14 people dead, several injured and about 700 people evacuated.
Speaking to the press on Wednesday in Malindi, North Coast Hoteliers Association chairperson Maureen Awuor insisted that there is no need for tourists to fear Kenya for everything was in control.
“We want to tell all international tourists that our security forces have taken control of everything in time at Riverside. They respondent at the right time and successfully terminated the terrorists.”
Franco Esposito, a Malindi-based Italian investor said that terror attacks happen in any part of the world, Kenya not being a unique country, hence no need for international communities to send traveling warnings against Kenya.
“We urge our friends at the international level not to announce this as a threat to their citizens, because once they do so they will create a stampede and tourism in this area and Kenya at large will deteriorate drastically,” added Esposito.
