Increased security at Maulidi Festival 2013

Kenya navy boat

In July 2012 the British High Commission donated a $100K high speed patrol boat to Lamu Administration police to help protect the Lamu Archipelago’s once pirate-infested waters between the fabled tourist destination and Somalia.
The High Commission said it planned to donate a second boat to the Kenya Defense Forces. Whichever of the two boats appears in the photo still looks in good condition.
