Special AU envoy Raila Odinga on Wednesday visited 14 Riverside Drive where the Dusit Complex is located in Nairobi.

Mr Odinga made his visit moments after he delivered an address condemning the Al Shabaab terror attack that claimed 14 lives at the facility.

In his statement, the former Prime Minister condemned the attack and the perpetrators saying that they only intended to break the country.

"Once again, the devil has struck at the heart of our country. We wish to express our deep shock and disgust at the abhorrent acts of terror that occurred yesterday, January 15, 2019 evening.

"Their mission was to cause pain and fear and they proceeded to do so without seeking details.

"Our survival depends on standing together against these agents of doom. We appeal to Kenyans to continue being each other’s keepers and continue offering help where it is needed," the joint statement with Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka read in part.

Mr Odinga was joined by Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu, Suna East MP Junet Mohamed, Mavoko MP Patrick Makau and other Opposition politicians.

Active Crime Scene

Earlier in the day, Interior CS Fred Matiang'i announced that the Dusit Complex would remain an active crime scene as DCI boss George Kinoti and his team conducted investigations.

President Uhuru Kenyatta also added his voice in condemnation of the act conveying that all attackers had been eliminated.
