Last night, innocent civilians were targeted yet again by terrorists in twin attacks in Mombasa. Four deaths have been confirmed in this heinous attack.
My heart goes out to the families of the bereaved. My Government will give them every support.
I must thank the emergency services, the police, and ordinary Kenyans, who reacted to the attacks with exemplary compassion and composure.
Since independence, Kenyans have enjoyed freedom of worship and religion. Kenyans of different faiths have lived together in peace throughout our history.
The terrorists would like a war of religion, bringing to an end our history of tolerance. This country will not allow it.
The terrorists will be treated as the vicious criminals they are, and our tradition of easy coexistence will be maintained.
The terrorists wish to see us despairing and divided. They will be disappointed.
My government’s pursuit of extremists and their agents will continue; under law, it will be intensified. Those who chose to murder innocents will be defeated.
Let me commend the security agencies for their persistence. They have already thwarted a number of attempted attacks. They will receive the support that they need to keep us safe.
Kenyans can help the government’s effort to bring the perpetrators to justice by remaining calm and vigilant, and by assisting the police and the security agencies with information.
God bless you all.
