I would like to offer my deepest sympathy to the victims of the terror attack at 14 Riverside Drive in Nairobi.
The cowardly attack came as a shock given the calm the country has witnessed over the last few years because of concerted efforts by the government to defeat those ill-bent at causing mayhem and suffering to innocent Kenyans.
The act was an attempt to instill fear in our citizenry which our gallant security forces responded with bravery, diligence and clinical execution to show the masterminds of terror that the people of this country is ready to defend themselves anytime.
In this regard, I would want to pay a special tribute to our security forces for timely and well-coordinated response to the attack. That valiant effort by both the forces and emergency service providers in the face of terror was the highest height of patriotism we can ever have.
Supporting our security agencies and emergency service responders were acts of bravery, selflessness and kindness by ordinary Kenyans who remained unbowed in rallying support and sharing messages of hope and inspiration.
As a nation, let us continue praying with the families of the affected while remaining vigilant. For those receiving treatment in various hospitals, I wish you quick recovery.
God Bless Kenya.
