On 1 September 2022, the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi issued a Security Alert, which reads in part as follows: “The Kenyan Supreme Court is scheduled to announce a ruling on the presidential results on September 5, 2022. Kenya has periodically experienced some post-electoral violence during election cycles.

“Election-related demonstrations and rallies regularly take place after elections, at times blocking key intersections and causing traffic jams. Demonstrations may occasionally be violent, requiring police intervention. Strikes and other protest activities related to economic conditions occur regularly.

“Out of an abundance of caution, the U.S. Embassy has imposed movement restrictions on U.S. government personnel in Kisumu. The State Department reminds U.S. citizens of the continued need for sustained vigilance.”
