The President of Federal Republic of Somalia H.E Hassan Sheikh Mohamud strongly condemned the terrorist attack that targeted bus passengers in Kenya’s North.
Gunmen ambushed a bus from Mandera that was heading to Nairobi, killing at least 20 passengers and hijacking a dozen more.
The President extends his deep condolences to the families of the victims as well as to the Government and people of Kenya and demands the quick release of those who were hijacked.
“This act demonstrates terrorists’ blatant disregard for life. Somalia and Kenya stand together in the fight against al-Shabab.
As a strong and enduring partner, we will continue to support the Kenyan people in their efforts to defeat terrorism,” the President states.
The Somali government supports Kenya’s efforts to bring all those involved in planning and executing this attack to justice and stands ready to provide any support to Kenyan authorities investigating this tragic attack.
