, NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 21 – The Police say that there have been no incidences of reported crime over the Easter Holidays, within Nairobi.

Nairobi Police Boss, Benson Kibui told Capital FM News on Monday that no robberies, muggings or crime of any kind, have been reported over this period.

He attributed this to the increased security within Nairobi, where officers have been patrolling the city and its environs.

“During this Easter Holiday celebrations, things have been very okay. Nothing was registered in as far as robberies, muggings or any other crimes. There have been no criminal activities during this period of time and we urge you as the public to remain vigilant,” he said.

He indicated that they will continue with the vigilance and urged members of the public to report any suspicious activities, as they go on with their festivities.

Security was beefed up across the country during the period leading to the Easter Holidays especially in the wake of terror threats.

In Mombasa, police have mounted roads blocks along the main highways and deployed more officers along the beaches, shopping malls and hotels.

Hotels at the Coast have shown a positive trend despite the recent security concerns in Mombasa.

A majority of the booking in most hotels comprises domestic tourists mainly from Nairobi among other parts of the country.

There was however a drop in numbers of international tourists following a decline in charter flights received in the coastal region. Most of the hotels have also their own security arrangement to ensure safety of visitors during the holiday.

Most of them have installed CCTV cameras and modern screening facilities at main entrance as way of improving security.
