6 Kenyans died in Mecca, 9 missing

29 September 2015, 14:40 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Supreme Council of Kenya Muslims SUPKEM says that 6 Kenyans died in the stampede in Mecca last week.

The stampede, which is estimated to have accounted for the lives of 717 pilgrims.

SUPKEM now says that 6 Kenyans died and 9 are missing after the disaster.

This contradicts an earlier statement by the government saying that only 3 Kenyans had died.

" We have confirmed 6 dead and 9 missing," SUPKEM said in a statement Tuesday.

The Foreign Affairs Ministry was not available for comment when reached by News24 over the matter.

The Saudi Arabian government has been blamed for the incident saying that if prior planning was injected, the accident could have been avoided.

According to Saudi authorities though, the problem was caused by overzealous pilgrims keen to attend the stoning of the devil in Mina.
