Uhuru cancels foreign trip following terror attack

President Uhuru Kenyatta has called off his official trip to Angola to attend a security summit following the latest terror attack by suspected Al Shabaab militia in Mandera  Town.

At least 12 people were shot dead in the bloody attack early on Tuesday Morning at Bishaaro Guest House in Mandera Town.

Police reports indicated the militants used improvised devices to break open the metal gates before breaking into rooms and shooting the occupants.

Solidarity

According to a statement released from State House, President Uhuru cancelled the trip to stand in solidarity with the families who have lost their loved ones, and those  injured, as he wishes them  a speedy recovery.

“The President condemns in the strongest terms,  this heinous attack by these depraved individuals. Our security agencies will do everything in their power to bring them to justice,” the statement read in part.

Uhuru will now be represented at the meeting in Luanda, Angola by his Deputy President William Ruto.

Tuesday’s incident is the third such attack to be carried out by suspected Al Shabaab militia this month.

Last week, a night guard was killed when police guarding Governor Ali Roba’s residence engaged Al Shabaab gunmen in Mandera Town.

Early this month, six people were killed by the militants in a residential plot at Bulla Public Works in the town.
