First Lady opens Westgate memorial exhibition

16 September 2014, 15:40 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - First Lady Margaret Kenyatta Tuesday opened an exhibition in Nairobi to commemorate last year’s terror attack on the Westgate Mall by the Al Shabaab militants.

Mrs. Kenyatta opened the exhibition dubbed Our Nairobi at the National Museums of Kenya
Gunmen attacked the Westgate Mall on 21 September, 2013 and killed at least 67 people. Several people were also injured in the attack.

“As a country, we stand in solidarity with the victims and survivors of the attack both in Kenya and elsewhere in the world. I acknowledge this is a time that brings much pain and sorrow to many, and is still a time of healing, having also lost members of our family in this senseless massacre,” the First Lady said during the memorial which was held at the National Museums of Kenya.

She thanked Kenyans for remaining united after the attack and maintained that the government will not relent on the war against terrorism.

“The Nation may have been seriously scarred, but we shall never be broken as a people. Our resilience is unconquerable. The unity we show in times of crisis should never be forgotten, and as I have said many times before, we should always be our brother’s keeper.

“We will never be cowed by such acts of cowardice,” she said.
