Commonwealth denounces terror attacks

18 June 2014, 19:40

Nairobi - The Commonwealth expressed solidarity with Kenya amid terror attacks perpetrated by the Al Shabaab group.

Secretary-General, Kamalesh Sharma, has condemned the latest terrorist attacks, according to spokesperson, Richard Uku.

“The Commonwealth roundly condemns these reprehensible terrorist attacks. The Commonwealth stands in solidarity with the government and people of Kenya, a member country that continues to play an active role which is widely appreciated in promoting stability as the foundation for the spread of democracy, development and prosperity in the region,” Sharma was quoted as saying in a statement.

“The Commonwealth recognises the importance of mutual respect, moderation and religious freedom. And the Commonwealth also recognises that the only effective and durable resolution of differences will come from peaceful means including dialogue.  We extend our deepest condolences to the bereaved families, and our solidarity and support to the Government and people of Kenya.”

More than 50 people lost their lives in the attack in Mpeketoni.

Another assault in neighbouring Poromoko killed at least nine people.
