25 November 2014, 19:00
Nairobi - Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale has questioned the whereabouts of President Uhuru Kenyatta at a time when Kenyans are suffering from terror attacks.
The president has yet to officially comment on the Mandera attack on a bus which left 28 people dead over the weekend.
He is currently in the gulf state of Qatar on apparent security contract business.
According to Khalwale, who was speaking at a protest march in Nairobi Tuesday over the rising state of insecurity in the country and needless loss of lives, Kenyans need better from the president.
" We all saw the photos. Kenyans are dying here while he is in Abu Dhabi watching Formula 1," he said to the size-able crowd gathered outside the president's Harambee House office.

He added that the fact the president has yet to say anything about the Mandera attacks officially says all it should about the state of leadership in the country.
" That he has yet to say anything paints its own picture," he added.
The bus attack, which saw persons, mostly teachers killed, has been condemned by Kenyans of all walks of life as well as opposition leaders.
Most have complained about the poor prevention tactics from the government, with many also faulting the reaction time by authorities to the incident.
