Meanwhile the legendary Mombasa Customs staff are excelling themselves and it's not only people suspected of bringing things for orphanages:
Mohamed Hersi, Regional general Manager of Sarova Hotels (Coast) and Mombasa and Coast Tourism Association (MCTA) chairman, was tweeting his protests about Customs at Mombasa, after he was searched after flying in from Addis yesterday, a selection of his tweets (some of which are response to replies to his tweets)
"I get far better treatment abroad than at home when I land. It is only in Kenya where customs will insist to go through my suitcase.
We work so hard trying to bring in tourists but customs line them all up as they rummage through their personal effects is just not on
Mombasa this afternoon virtually everyone was being asked to open
Its annoying and it takes a lot of energy to woo these tourists. Even locals get mistreated
Trust me securing the nation is the last thing on their minds.
That is the practice but in this case in Msa we were all lined up."
