Kenyan tourism chief blasts UK Government

The tourism
minister for Kenya has slammed the British Government over its handling of a
possible terrorist attack in the country.

Raphael Tuju
criticised the British Government for failing to communicate directly with him
since grounding all British Airways flights and advising against non-essential
travel to the country.

Tuju said
the Kenyan government had done “everything possible” to protect the
country against the terrorism threat after one of al-Qaeda’s terrorist
masterminds had slipped into Kenya to launch an imminent attack.

He said the
advice is costing Kenyan £600,000 a day.

“All other airlines are flying to Kenya,”
said Tuju.
