Kenya CitizenTV | Tourism slump forces hotels to scale down, lay off workers

Hoteliers and business owners in some parts of Coast region say a slump in tourism has forced them to close their businesses and lay off workers.

And as Mercy Kandie reports, stakeholders hope that improved security and a Sh1.2 billion incentive programme for charter flights will revamp the sector.
