Uhuru mourns slain Somali lawmaker, urges action

22 April 2014, 14:01 William Korir

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has condemned the murder of Somali lawmaker Isaq Mohamed Riino who was killed in a bomb attack in Somalia on Monday.

In a statement issued Tuesday, the president noted that the death of Mohamed was not only a big blow to his family and the Federal Government but also the people of Somalia who he served with commitment and dedication as a Member of Parliament.

"His contribution to rebuilding Somalia will always be remembered and honored by those he has left behind," Kenyatta said, calling for the perpetrators of the attack to be brought to justice.

He condemned the bomb attack that resulted in the death of the Somali legislator, saying that the country stands with the people of Somalia in the fight against terror.

"Such cowardly attacks strengthen our resolve to do everything within our powers to win the war on terror," President Kenyatta said.

"On behalf of the government and the people of Kenya, I convey to the Federal Government and the people of Somalia, as well as the family of the late Hon. Mohamed our heartfelt condolences," he said.

"I assure you that the people and the Government of Kenya stand with you during this difficult time of mourning."

On Monday, Riino, member of the Somali federal parliament, was killed and another MP, Mohamed Ali, was seriously injured in a car bomb blast.

On Tuesday, yet another Somali MP was killed in an attack which has caused panic in the country.
