The government in Kenya has said security officials are on high alert following the twin explosions in neighboring Uganda on Tuesday.
Government spokesperson Cyrus Oguna urged citizens to be vigilant and report any suspicious characters or movements.
The alert comes days after three prisoners who were convicted for terrorism-related charges escaped from a prison in the capital Nairobi.
Meanwhile, the so-called Islamic State Group (IS) has said it was behind the Uganda blasts.
IS’s “news agency” Amaq said Uganda was “one of the countries participating in the war against Islamic state fighters in Central Africa.
President Yoweri Museveni, in a series of tweets on Tuesday night, condemned the attacks and said that they were being carried out by “confused grandchildren”.
