Nakuru - A group of foreigners drawn from Canada, United Kingdom and Australia have called on tourist all over the world not to fear visiting the county following the recent Westgate mall attack.
Foreigners who are on religious and medical missions in Nakuru said that the Westgate mall attack should not intimidate tourists who were planning to visit the country.
Addressing journalists on Wednesday morning in Nakuru town, Stephen Stewart said that countries from all over the world are at risk of being invaded by terrorists and therefore what happened in Kenya could happen anywhere else.
“These heinous attacks on innocent people should not be reason for tourists to stop visiting this beautiful country because such attacks can happen anywhere in the world,” he said.
Stewart said that Saturday’s attack was unfortunate and needs to be condemned in the strongest terms possible.
He said that Kenyans have demonstrated that they are peace loving adding that the country is bestowed with beautiful sceneries which tourists should visit freely.
His wife, Christine Stewart, said that the world should pray for Kenya at this difficult time of mourning.
“I believe Kenya has come a long way and that’s why the enemies are not happy with the development taking place in this country,” she said.
