Likoni church marks one year since terror attack

23 March 2015, 10:31 Mbungu Harrison

Mombasa- Joy in Jesus Church in Likoni marked one year after a terror attack that led to death of six people and left over 20 injured, despite a very poor turnout.

Few worshippers attend services at the church even after the government offered to offer them security.

Led by the church Pastor, Willis Omondi, the worshippers are now calling on members who left the church to return since the government enhanced security.

Omondi said since the attack, over 200 worshipers have left the church for fear of fresh attacks.

“Many worshippers do not want to come to this church since that attack happened; they are afraid but security officers are always with us as we conduct our services,’’ said Omondi.

Nairobi Senator, Mike Sonko who joined the worshippers for the Sunday afternoon service in the company of his wife and the family of adopted baby Satrin Osinya, asked them to pray for the County’s security.

Sonko, who is a member of the Senate security committee, said the government was making all efforts to ensure security is provided to all Kenyans.

“The government is doing a lot of things to fight terrorism in the country. We support the deployment of Kenya Defense Forces in Somali land to fight the militia,” said Sonko.

Last year, hooded gunmen stormed the Church and fired indiscriminately at worshippers, killing two on the spot while four  others succumbed to injuries while undergoing treatment in different hospitals.
