We will pursue them relentlessly. I assure all our investors, visitors in the country that they are safe.

We are grieving as a country this morning and my heart and that of every Kenyan goes out to the innocent men and women violated by senseless violence. Over 700 civilians were evacuated from the scene of the attack.

Even as we regret the incident I commend the quick and swift response by all fighting teams for neutralising the threat.

I also commend the civilians who looked after one another during the attack. Let us now go back to work. May Gob bless Kenya” the Head of State stated.
