But the official admitted that due to security fears, the embassy will not be sending any official to the four-day event that usually attracts thousands of visitors from Kenya and around the world.
Previously, the embassy sent officials to the event, especially since the US supported it with millions of shillings. "We have not issued any specific advisory to US citizens not to travel to the festival," she added
The US on Tuesday also renewed its insistence that it is not involved in any way in Kenyaâs military incursion in Somalia, but admitted that it has ongoing agreements to train Kenyan soldiers and to enhance Kenyaâs capabilities in border security.
"The reports that our drones are bombing Al Shabaab in Somalia are not true. We are not even offering advice to the operation," said Katya.
