Big Blow to Mombasa's Beach Merry Makers as Ruto's CS Also Bans Alcohol

Kenyans thronging the coastal city of Mombasa to make merry by the Indian Ocean beaches have been dealt another major blow after Mining, Blue Economy and Maritime CS Salim Mvurya announced a ban on alcohol taking in all coastal beaches.

This followed a tragic accident that led to the death of two people at the Pirates beach afyer their boat capsized on Christmas day.

Salim said this will ensure safety in all beaches as Kenyans continue enjoying their festivities in Mombasa.

“This is a festive season and we have so many tourists both local and international who have visited the Coast. Of importance is their safety and that is why we are putting in these measures," stated Mr Mvurya.

This comes hours after the CS also banned all beach activities beyond 5 pm in Mombasa.

With immediate effect, by 5.30, we do not expect that there will be someone at the beach because it is high tide and people are at risk of drowning. And for those operating boats, we want any vessel getting into the Ocean to abide to safety rules such as life jackets. We will inspect the life jackets to ensure that they are proper ones,” CS Mvurya added.
