US government shuts down key embassy facility in Nairobi

This is why.

In a notice issued on Monday the embassy stated that the centre shall remain closed until further notice.

"In accordance with instruction from Washington, the American Resource Center at the US Embassy in Nairobi is closed until further notice. We appreciate your understanding," the notice read.

The centre is a vital source of information for people who want to learn more about the US.

The Embassy's Gigiri building will have other centres open but have given no indication whether they will continue to be operational or will be unavailable to the public as the US government shut down continues.

The shut down happens when the president and Congress fail to pass legislation for funding government operations and agencies.

This shut down occurred due to the failure of the involved parties to meet a Friday midnight deadline on a spending bill.

This will cause thousands of workers to report to work as from Monday.

The Embassy's Resource Centre requires membership which is free.

It is done by filling an online membership form and includes free Wi-Fi, eLibraryUSA, eGranary, thousands of books, magazines and videos.
