Thanks for sharing of such info.
Where is it written that the travel restriction to Lamu is lifted??
In the link given where it says
❝The travel restriction for Lamu has been lifted. However, the restriction remains in place for the coastal area north of Pate Island, including Kiwayu and north to Kiunga located on the Kenya/Somalia border.❞
It means that in the "unlikely" event of getting kidnapped, your govt. (from whichever country you come from), will "NOT" enter into kind of ransom negotiation. Your family members will have to foot the ransom money !!
What on earth has that got to do with the travel restriction being lifted?
Some governments will pay ransoms, some will not under any circumstances. Whether a travel restriction is in place or not is totally irrelevant, and also has nothing, whatsoever, to do with the question
Doff - you've been around long enough to distinguish btwn a joke, sarc comment & genuine post.
Ha ha..Anyway thanks for the info
can never tell with you Stef, you seem to have a unique sense of humour
