Nairobi - Government officials and other dignitaries continue to visit the injured victims of the Westgate terrorist attack at various hospitals.
Deputy President, William Ruto, who just returned from The Hague for a one-week break, led a section of Cabinet Secretaries and legislators for visits at the MP Shah and Aga Khan hospitals.
Ruto retaliated the government’s commitment to improve security in the country, exuding confidence that the Westgate Mall perpetrators will be brought to book.
Visiting the injured, Head of the Catholic church in Kenya, John Cardinal Njue, urged Kenyans not to view the incident from a religious angle since no single religion advocates for violence.
Njue said that every individual should be held accountable for his or her actions terming the attack as criminal and calling for religious tolerance.
Njue thanked Kenyans for their overwhelming support they have been giving to the victims emphasising the need to respect human life and the right to live.
He asked the government to speed up investigations into the mall attack.
