New Rules For Those Looking To Stay At A Kenyan AIRBnB

After the alarming rates of murders that have been reported this past few weeks, there will be new rules for those looking to stay at an Airbnb. The Private Security Regulatory Authority announced new measures to be taken by AirBnBs in Kenya.

Guests looking to stay at AirBnBs will now have to surrender their Identification Cards for recording and withholding when they arrive at the establishments. Their IDs will be returned to them when they check out.

“At the entry of any premises or property within the jurisdiction and care of a private security service provider, a security guard or security officer, the private security service provider or officer shall require a person to identify themselves, register the time of entrance, and exit of the person and retain temporarily the identification document.”

Further, the security team will have to record identification details including time of entry and exit. They will also be required to ensure the CCTV footage is well-placed and working. The log of vehicles and motorcycles entering the premises shall also be recorded.

These new measures have been put in place to deal with the increasing amount of murders happening to young women. Recently, women have been sharing their experiences with men they meet online who invite them over to AirBnBs only to hurt them.

AirBnB has however distanced itself from the recent happenings. According to the San Francisco-based company, the bookings were not done on their App, and have no records of such apartments involved in some of the recent cases.
