Dear Danes in Kenya,

 

As earlier informed, the Kenyan Supreme Court is most likely expected to rule on the petitions challenging the presidential election result by March 30, 2013.  The decision may be announced during the Easter holiday weekend, a time when many people go out of town.

There could be a strong public reaction to the announcement; therefore, the Danish Embassy strongly urges all Danish citizens to avoid gatherings, demonstrations, downtown business areas, slums, and large crowds of any kind.  Demonstrations could also lead to traffic congestion and possible road closures.

Danish citizens are advised to be cautious and monitor local media for the latest information on demonstrations and traffic disruptions, particularly those who plan to spend the holiday away from home.  We also encourage you to consult the travel advice for Kenya and the Nordic Emergency Plan on the Embassy website www.kenya.um.dk.

Best regards and happy Easter,
Danish Embassy, Nairobi
