Top organ representing Muslim leaders in Kenya on Wednesday condemned terrorist attack at the upmarket Dusit business complex located in Nairobi’s Westlands district where 14 civilians died.
“We strongly condemn the barbaric and criminal tactics of perpetuating acts of violence against innocent people. We reiterate that these actions are unacceptable, immoral and inconsistent with any human values and ethos,” said the Muslim leaders in a statement issued in Nairobi.
The leaders pledged to rally behind local and global efforts to eradicate terrorism, terming it an evil that transcends religious and ethnic barriers.
The Muslim leaders also appealed to the authorities to conduct swift and targeted probe aimed at unmasking individuals or groups behind planning, financing and execution of the latest terrorist attack in Kenya.
“We call upon and support the effort of security and investigative organs to do a thorough and comprehensive investigation in order to bring culprits to book,” said the Muslim leaders.
They appealed for calm, unity and sobriety as the country embarked on healing after the terrorist attack in the upscale 14 River Side Drive that houses the high-end dusitD2 Hotel and offices for multinational companies.
Somalia-based militants al-Shabab claimed responsibility for the Tuesday terrorist attack at the business complex that is regarded as a premier destination for high-end commerce and dining. Enditem
