TOP security chiefs at the Coast yesterday toured government institutions to ensure their safety.

This comes after Thursday’s al Shabaab terror attack on Garissa University College, in which 147 died and 79 were injured.

Earlier intelligence reports said al Shabaab had planned a major attack in Mombasa and were specifically targeting government institutions.

The security chiefs visited Shimo la Tewa prison, Huduma Centre, Kenya Revenue Authority premises and the Likoni crossing channel, among other places.

Marwa, who led the delegation, told the Star police are fully prepared and proper mechanisms have been put in place to combat any attack.

“We are on top of things and we cannot ignore any terror threat,” Marwa said.

Accompanying him were Nyali police boss Stephen Kiago, CID head Henry Ondiek, police commander Robert Kitur and NIS chief Paul Lang’at.

Also present were deputy prisons boss Samuel Nyutu, Mombasa assistant DPP Alexander Muteti and county AP boss Daud Mohammed.
