The European Union has denied issuing a travel advisory to Kenya following last week’s terror attack at 14 Riverside in Nairobi that claimed 21 lives.

Walter Tretton, who is part of the European Union Delegation to Kenya, on Monday said the E.U stands with Kenya in the fight against terrorism, which he said is now a global issue.

Mr. Tretton, who was flanked by Chief Administrative Secretary in the Ministry of Transport Chris Obure, spoke at the Mt. Kenya National Park where they launched roads funded by the EU and the Kenyan government.

He further observed that Kenya has stood with other nations during terror attacks and has never issued travel advisories.

The roads constructed in Tsavo, the Aberdare and Mt. Kenya National Park at a cost of Ksh.2.3 billion are meant to ease access to parks in order to boost tourism, security and enhance rescue operations.
