The Kenya Airports Police Unit (Kapu) was not informed of the presence
of the two Armenians who addressed the press at the Jomo Kenyatta
International Airport on Monday morning.

Commandant Moses Nyakwama and his CID counterpart Judy Ndeda said the
unit did not know that the two foreigners were talking to journalists
at the VIP lounge.

Kapu is charged with security matters at all airports in the country
and the unit’s officers are usually informed of any event taking
place at the VIP lounge preserved for top Government officials.

A team of detectives, including Kenya Airports Authority and Kapu
officers, has been told to investigate those who arranged the press

The team had by last evening interrogated seven KAA employees over
the saga.

“There is still a lot to be investigated and officers need time.

Security officials were not aware of the events then,” said Nyakwama.

The police boss said the team sewould interrogate everyone who was
involved in the press conference.

Some of the members asked if journalists who went to interview the
Armenians got clearance from the KAA security desk.
