Curfew in Lamu will not be lifted just yet – Kimaiyo

The security curfew declared two months ago in Lamu will not be lifted just yet.

Inspector General of police David Kimaiyo says lifting the ban now could interfere with the ongoing security operation.

Kimaiyo says police are still hunting for suspects behind a spate of mass killings between June and August this year that left more than 90 people dead.

Meanwhile the government has promised to deploy more Police Reservists in Lamu to boost security according to County commissioner Njenga Miiri.

Sierra Leone in three-day Ebola lockdown

A three-day curfew is under way in Sierra Leone to let health workers find and isolate cases of Ebola, in order to halt the spread of the disease.

Many people have been reluctant to seek medical treatment for Ebola, fearing that diagnosis might mean death as there is no proven cure.

A team of 30,000 people is going house-to-house to find those infected and distribute soap.

But critics say the lockdown will damage public trust in doctors.

Meanwhile in neighboring Guinea, the bodies of eight missing health workers and journalists involved in the Ebola campaign have been found.

A government spokesman said some of the bodies had been recovered from a septic tank in the village of Wome. The team had been attacked by villagers on Tuesday.

Guinea’s prime minister said an investigation was under way, and vowed to catch the perpetrators of the “heinous murders”.


Curfew in Lamu extended for another month

The dusk to dawn curfew imposed by the police in Lamu last month will continue for at least another thirty days.

Inspector General of police David Kimaiyo says they are still working to flush out criminal elements responsible of recent violence in the county that left many dead and others homeless.

Kimaiyo said the new curfew will run from August 21 to September 21 due to insecurity and ongoing police operations in the area.

Meanwhile Boni Forest, believed to be the main hideout for the criminals, remains out of bounds for the residents, Kimaiyo said.

The military and police have been combing the forest as they hunt for the attackers.

The latest attack took place on Monday, where a police station was attacked at Bodhei on the border with Garrisa County.
