I stand with the families of those who have lost their lives and extend my deepest condolences. May God give them comfort during this difficult time. The county government will provide the necessary support in the days to come,” said Joho.

Joho stated that his county is multi-cultural and multi-religious where residents have co-existed peacefully for many years, cautioning that any religious institution including Mosques are sacred places for prayers and not for any other evil activities.
