The United Kingdom has issued a travel advisory on Kenya following last week’s general elections.
The advisory, released on Sunday by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), warns UK citizens that there have been protests in some parts of the country since August 11th and urges UK citizens in Kenya to remain vigilant and avoid areas where demonstration or disturbance is taking place.
“There have been protests in a number of areas since August 11. Further protests are possible,” reads the advisory in part.
"The opposition has disputed the results. In the past, some political protests, rallies and demonstrations have turned violent…During this period, you should exercise a heightened level of vigilance and take care in public places,” continues the advisory.
The advisory warns UK citizens to avoid travel to areas within 60km of the Kenya-Somalia border, Garissa, Lamu, as well as Tana River North.
Safari destinations and beach resorts in the Coast are safe to visit, says the advisory.
