    Mpeketoni is no where near the heart of Kenya’s tourist economy no tourist resorts there whatsoever more like regular restaurants and hotels and it is less than 20 minutes away from Somalia. Stop believing everything western media tells you it may do you good to follow Kenyan media houses for accurate information
