Families remember their loved ones

07 August 2013, 16:42 Mike Munga

The August 7 Memorial Park was full of activities Wednesday morning as friends and relatives gathered to remember their loved ones.

Kenyans from all walks of life started thronging in as early as 9:00 am at the site where at least 200 people were killed and more than 5 000 injured following explosions at the United States embassy in Nairobi 15 years ago.

Nairobi County Assembly speaker Alex Ole Magelo who was the chief guest sympathised with the survivors saying, "Fifteen year have passed but things are the same. I was saddened when I saw one of the victims taking some drugs as I sat there."

He called on the government to form a survivor’s kit for major tragedy survivors.

“The best thing to do is touch each and everyone who survived and is nursing injuries. Also, those who were left with young children must not be forgotten,” He noted, as he praised the Nairobi Senator Gidion Mbuvi Sonko terming him as a man of action.

Hon. Moses Ogeto, County Rep. Kilimani Ward promised to set up a bursary fund for Rajab, a boy who lost his father in the tragedy. Douglas, a victim who lost his eyes thanked the County Speaker Magelo and former Nairobi Mayor Nathan Kihara for their concerns and pleaded with the government to stand with all victims in Kenya and not just the 1998 bomb blast victims.
