Recent bombings in Kenya have dented President Uhuru Kenyatta’s plans to boost tourism and undermined his pledge to restore security after last year’s Westgate shopping mall attack. Travel warnings issued by the United States, Britain, France and Australia last month have sent their citizens packing, emptying Kenya’s palm-fringed beaches and forcing hotels to lay off staff. On taking office last year Kenyatta vowed to lift tourist numbers to 5 million annually within five years, three times’ last year’s level, and get economic growth into double figures in his bid to raise incomes and lift millions out of poverty.
