Dutch nationals evacuated to Nairobi

Dutch nationals in the Kenyan city of Eldoret are due to be evacuated to Nairobi, on Wednesday reports ANP news service.

Around 30 Dutch people who live or are on holiday in Kenya will be flown to the capital because of increasing violence in Eldorat where there are food shortages and the threat of plundering and rioting, said ANP.
‘It has become dangerous for Westerners in Eldorat,’ Jurjen de Groot, a Dutchman who works for a church organisation in the city, told ANP.
