US warns against travel to western Kenyan cities

“The State Department warned Americans Thursday against travel to Kisumu and other western Kenyan cities while temporarily moving a number of US officials from Kisumu to the capital Nairobi.

“US citizens should avoid all travel to the cities of Kisumu, Nakuru and Naivasha, and defer all non-essential travel to the remaining portions of Nyanza, Western, and Rift Valley provinces,” it said in a statement.”
