President Uhuru Kenyatta has called off his official visit to Angola to attend a security summit to be held over the Mandera attack that left 12 people dead.
President Kenyatta has asked the Deputy President, His Excellency William Ruto, to represent him at the meeting in Luanda.
The President also condemned in the strongest terms this heinous attack by these depraved individuals.
In a statement sent to newsrooms, the Head of State said, “our security agencies will do everything in their power to bring them to justice, Kenyans will not allow themselves to be divided along religious lines, which is what the terrorists want. “
“Every Kenyan of goodwill, Christian and Muslim alike, knows that it is wrong to take innocent life. Rather, we recognise that to win this war, we must remain united. One way in which we can show that unity, and defend our Republic, is by cooperating closely with our security agencies as they work to keep us safe,” he said.
The attack occurred early Tuesday morning where several Kenyans were cruelly murdered in the terrorist attack.
Those killed include 11 men and one woman.
The attack comes barely three weeks after six people lost their lives in an attack by armed Al-Shabaab militiamen on a residential area in Mandera Town.
One person was injured in the early morning attack that took place at Bulla public works plot.
