KAA to probe leak of Obama motorcade photos
Kenya Airports Authority has raised concerns over images of President Barack Obama’s motorcade taken at the JKIA on Thursday.
The authority said it is investigating how the photos were leaked to the press and on social media.
“We are in consultation with the security agencies and the respective ground-handling company to ascertain how the images were acquired,” KAA said via twitter on Friday.
A cargo plane carrying armoured vehicles with diplomatic plates landed at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport on Thursday.
Sources who spoke to the Star said they are a boost to the number of armoured vehicles used by the US embassy in Nairobi.
Government sources revealed that the US has over the last two weeks sent other vehicles to be used by Obama’s team.
The US has also shipped communication equipment, with the core vehicles, including an ambulance, expected in Nairobi mid-next week, according to sources.
Obama is scheduled to be in the country on July 25 to 26 for the 6th Global Entrepreneurship Summit to be held at the United Nations Complex in Gigiri.
