Africa Oil Corp. (Africa Oil) reports on the security situation in Kenya. There will be few people now that are not aware of the attack that took place at a shopping centre in Nairobi on Saturday 21 September. Our thoughts are with all of those affected by this tragic event. Our hopes remain focused on those that are still involved.
Africa Oil continues to monitor developments on the ground and is maintaining close contact with both the Kenyan law enforcement agencies and the relevant diplomatic missions to ensure that we are fully appraised of the developing security situation.
The security situation in Nairobi outside of the immediate area of the attack remains calm, our personnel are safe and field operations have not been affected. Our primary concern is the safety and security of our staff and contractors and we will continue to monitor the situation closely.
Kenya, like so many other countries in the world, is not immune to terrorist attacks. And like those other countries Kenya has vowed to not allow these attacks to halt its social, political and economic development that is so important not only to its own citizens, but the region and Africa as a whole.
