Uganda condemns Westgate's ‘cowardly terror act’

23 September 2013, 16:40 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - The government of Uganda on Monday officially condemned the Westgate mall attack in Nairobi by Al Shabaab terming it as ‘cowardly terror act’.

Security in Uganda has been stepped up in all shopping malls and all places where big numbers of people assemble.

Uganda's Minister of Information, Rose Namayanja, said in a statement, ''On Saturday 21st September 2013, at about 1200 hours, the Government of the Republic of Uganda learnt with profound shock of a cowardly act of terrorism at a shopping complex in Nairobi, Kenya. In the bloody attack, a gang of armed terrorists, who Kenyan Security Forces are still confronting, besieged Westgate Shopping Mall in Nairobi and started shooting indiscriminately at shoppers.”

As earlier suspected, a gloating Al shabaab terrorist group, with a trail of similar bloody attacks in the past, has indeed conceded to have staged this horror incident in Nairobi. This, the militants say, is a ‘response’ to Kenya’s contribution to the on-going UN peace mission in Somalia.

The Government of the Republic of Uganda condemns in the strongest terms the barbaric, primitive and cowardly terrorist act by the Al-shabaab at Westgate Shopping Mall in Nairobi, saying it is a misguided act of desperation designed by evil elements to divide the people of Kenya and break the country’s resolve and to support the Global anti-terrorism fight and the on-going UN stabilization Mission in Somalia.

The Government of the Republic of Uganda has sent its condolences to the Government of Kenya and the bereaved families and the People of Kenya at large during this difficult period, confident that Kenyan security forces now confronting the terrorist’s gang at Westgate Shopping Mall will apprehend all its evil elements in the shortest time possible.

“We would like to see the members of this killer-gang drawing the fullest wrath of the law and as soon as possible,” read the statement issued by Rose Namayanja.

“As this painful situation is being resolved, we hope that calm and unity will continue to prevail in Kenya. We also trust that the Government of the Republic of Kenya will remain stead-fast in its commitment in the global anti-terrorism fight.  Uganda Government is available to offer any support, as may be required towards decisively busting this syndicated ring of killers, she added, extending messages of hope and goodwill to those affected by the incident.

She also confirmed that a Ugandan National was among those affected, according to reports from the Ugandan High commission in Nairobi.
