Sections Of Nairobi CBD ‘Out Of Bounds’ As The Africa Climate Summit Kicks Off

Security around the Nairobi CBD has been beefed up ahead of the Africa Climate Summit and Africa Climate Week 2023, scheduled for September 4 to 8.

The event will be held at Nairobi’s Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC).

The security protocols and logistics were put through a full simulation test, which included a dry-run of dignitaries arriving at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) and moving to Nairobi CBD.

Other factors included activities at the main venue, emergency response, traffic flow, and crowd control.

Nairobi City, according to Internal Security PS Raymond Omollo, has been zoned for ease of security management. Harambee Avenue, Parliament Road, City Hall Way, Taifa Road, and the adjacent “Red” buildings.

Personnel from the Kenya Defence Forces (KDF), the General Service Unit (GSU), General Duty Police Officers, and the National Youth Service (NYS) make up the team.

“Specialized units have also been deployed in strategic locations to provide technical security support during this period.”

Several roads in Nairobi’s CBD have been designated as red zones for Africa Climate Summit delegates.
