Support Garissa attack family members, says Sakaja

13 April 2015, 21:33 Arap Yego

Nairobi - Nominated MP Johnson Sakaja has asked Kenyans to support the family members of the victims of the recent Garissa terror attack, in any way they can.

Sakaja said Kenyans should come together the same way they did during the Westgate attack, in supporting the families that lost their loved ones at the hands of the terrorists who attacked the Garissa University College at the beginning of this month.

“We should show the same unity we did after the Westgate attack. We should stand with the families of those who lost their kin and also support the victims of the attack,” said Sakaja, at the Chiromo Mortuary yesterday, where he went to condole with the families who lost their kin.

Sakaja and his friends donated food stuff and drinks to grieving relatives at the mortuary and also medical staff and volunteers at the facility.

Sakaja who shared lunch with the group was accompanied with Deputy Head of Mission at Kenyan Embassy in Somalia Ambassador Yvonne Khamati among others

“Those grieving because of the loss of their loved ones need us most during this difficult period of mourning,” he said.

Cabinet Secretary for Sports, Culture and Arts Dr Hassan Wario also visited Chiromo mortuary and condoled with those grieving.

Wario who spoke with journalists, asked Kenyan’s not to be divided along religious lines by the recent attack, noting that there is no justification of killing people in any religion.

“The terrorists have no justification whatsoever to commit this horrendous act in the name of religion.  Their aim is to divide Kenyans, and we should not allow ourselves to fall into their trap,” said Wario.
