At least to 4,000 security officers have been deployed to secure the Kenyatta International law Convention Centre, the primary venue of the Africa Climate Summit set to begin Monday, with the expected arrival of foreign leaders.

The Ministry of Interior and National Administration said Saturday that the multi-agency security team will secure the venue and its environs.

The team will also provide delegates with the required logistical support before, during and after the Summit.

The team comprises personnel from the Kenya Defence Forces (KDF), the General Service Unit (GSU), General Duty Police Officers as well as the National Youth
Service (NYS).

“Specialized units have also been deployed at strategic locations to provide technical security support during this period, ” Interior Principal Secretary Raymond Omollo said.

To test the preparation for the global event, the security protocols and logistics were on Saturday subjected to a full simulation test which featured a dry-run of the arrival of dignitaries at the JKIA and movement to Nairobi CBD.

The simulation also involved activities at the main venue, emergency responses, as well as the general flow of traffic and crowd control measures.

PS Omollo added that the Nairobi City has been zoned for ease of security management, with Harambee Avenue, Parliament Road, City Hall Way, and Taifa Road and the adjacent buildings marked as red zones.
