“Terrorist 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 travellers.”
According to the US Embassy in Kenya, blood would soon been flowing in the streets, this time from a major hotel in the city unless Kenyan authorities act immediately.
In the past, warnings from the Embassy have ended up falling on deaf years among the Kenyan security apparatus, leading to deaths of innocent Kenyans in the hands of terrorists.
According to the US Embassy in Nairobi, tourists and business travellers should do the following:
Exercise increased vigilance when visiting or staying at hotels in the Nairobi area.
If staying at a hotel, 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.
