Foreign Affairs Principal Secretary Macharia Kamau told a press conference on Friday that the students are “safe where they are” since China is ensuring their safety.
“China is doing a great job protecting our students where they are. All [the students] are taken care of and well. We admire what China has been able to do. However, we are preparing for all contingencies.,” PS Macharia said.
He added, “China is facilitating Kenyans [there] in all possible ways, and keeping them safe as the government looks at options available to respond effectively for the best interest of the students.”
