The US Embassy has issued a terror alert in the city revealing that terror groups may be plotting an attack against a major hotel in Nairobi.
The exact hotel has not been identified, but it is believed to be a hotel popular with tourists and business travelers.
The Embassy advised that citizens exercise increased vigilance when visiting or staying at hotels in the Nairobi area, cautioning that those staying at hotels be aware of the hotel’s evacuation plan.
“Plan ahead of time how you would exit the hotel in case of an emergency. Review your personal security plans. Be aware of your surroundings. Monitor local media for updates,” they stated.
This follows a press release from the office of Inspector General National Police Service regarding periodic security alerts. NPS as well has cautioned the public to be extra vigilant and share with police and other security agencies any suspicious activities.
