Raila urges West to help Kenya trace mall attackers

02 October 2013, 15:19 Mike Munga

Nairobi - Former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga, has urged the West to stand with Kenya and help them trace the attackers who mercilessly butchered innocent Kenyans at the Westgate shopping mall.

Speaking at KICC during the National Inter - religious prayer service on Tuesday, he told Western countries not to issue travel advisories to its citizens planning to tour Kenya but help the country bring the attackers to book.

"This is the time to show how the world is united against terrorism since it happens anywhere in the world," he said.

He noted that 'no amount of tears, words and prayers could compensate the victims but the country must prepare to protect itself to put the terrorists at bar'.

He also urged Kenyan leaders to change they way they gather information and how they act on the information gathered.

"Our borders must be secured; change rules on how people acquire properties and make border officers accountable,” he noted, adding that digitisation of passports is a must.

He stated that the country comes first before everything else.

“There is no opposition and government at the time of tragedy. Despite the political differences, I am able to work with the President and do the necessary to defend innocent Kenyans from any tragedy,” he said.

He persuaded Kenyans to bear with the security officers saying they sacrifice a lot for the safety of the citizens.
