Today, I've seen how much God loves me!! He's given me another chance to live. I hope everyone survived the attack at Dusit. I've never come across such a thing in my life!!! People have been injured and some have lost their lives! The police should dig deep into this issue because the kind of weapons that we're used a few minutes back are not usual! Someone somewhere is supplying this people with this weapons. While in my meeting the first thing I had was a blast from a very powerful explosive, the second thing that followed were gun shots. I can't believe I'm here typing, I just survived this horrific incident. Thank you Lord. I will never get tired of thanking you and serving under you!!!” read the post.

Al-Shabaab attack

Terror group Al-Shabaab has claimed responsibility for the afternoon attack that has sparked tension countrywide.

“We are currently conducting an operation in Nairobi,” The group’s military operations spokesman said when speaking to Al Jazeera.

What we know so far is that four perpetrators arrived at the junction linking Chiromo Lane with Riverside Drive and remained parked for thirty minutes before the incident.

They then forced their way into the parking lot and thereafter a huge explosion, believed to have been a suicide bomber, went off at 3:50 pm at the Secret Garden Hotel.

Some reports indicate that the four may have created an entry point for more cars to access the building.

The terrorists are believed to have begun shooting indiscriminately which is still ongoing in the top floors of the buildings.
