MPs donate KES 2M for Westgate victims

24 September 2013, 20:28 Alfred Onyango

Nairobi - Members of the National Assembly have donated their Tuesday's allowances to help Westgate mall attack victims.

The KES 2 million donation was announced by the Speaker of the National Assembly, Justin Muturi. Hon. Muturi also passed condolences to the bereaved families and those injured.

"On my behalf and on behalf of the National Assembly, I send my condolences to the bereaved families," He said remorsefully.

The National Assembly also adjourned session to at 4:30 pm to discuss the issue. The parliamentarians who contributed the money also paid their tribute to Kenyan families for showing solidarity during the hard time.

Marjority leader Hon. Aden Duale however challenged the goverment to empower Red cross society instead of spending so much on the Ministry of Special Programmes which he said is ineffective.

The house encouraged Kenyans to embrace community policing like our neighbour Ethiopia. 

Westgate Mall was attacked by suspected terrorist numbered between ten to fifteen. The Saturday attack left at least 65 people dead and 175 injured out of which only fifty were still hospitalised as at 4.00pm on Tuesday. 

Among the sixty-five were three  KDF soldiers.

On the other hand, Kenyans have donated over KES 57m through M-pesa for Westgate attack victims. According to secretary general of The Red cross, Abbas Gullet, the money will mainly be used on counseling of the attack victims and their families.
