The State Department further warned that events including rallies, protests and demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence.

“You should avoid areas of demonstrations and exercise caution if in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations,” the alert stated.

It further urges its citizens to exercise caution and remain abreast of the security situation throughout the electoral period.

“Avoid crowds and remain alert when using public transportation. Report specific safety concerns to local law enforcement authorities and stay in touch with your family members and ensure they know how to reach you in the event of an emergency,” the alert advised.

The US also issued a similar travel warning to Americans traveling to or living in Kenya ahead of the August elections.

The Kenya National Commission on Human Rights disclosed that 24 people had been killed in the election-related violence as Odinga's supporters clashed with the police.
