“Our prayers today are with our brothers and sisters in Kenya. We also send a strong message of solidarity with the Kenyan government, our valued partners in the campaign to bring peace to Somalia.”

The Somali Al Shabaab terrorists on Saturday claimed responsibility for the attack described by President Uhuru Kenyatta as “cowardly” and “barbaric.”

Mohamud said, “These heartless acts against defenceless civilians, including innocent children, are beyond the pale and cannot be tolerated. We stand shoulder to shoulder with Kenya in its time of grief for these lives lost and the many injured.”

Kenyatta said the way Kenyans lead their lives; in freedom, openness, unity and consideration for each other represents the countrys victory over all those who wish them ill.

“We are as brave and invincible as the lions on our Coat of Arms,” said Kenyatta.

“We have overcome terrorist attacks before. In fact, we have fought courageously and defeated them within and outside our borders. We will defeat them again. Terrorism in and of itself, is the philosophy of cowards.”

Kenya State House also indicated that the Head of Public Service Management, Justa Nkoroi, was among those who were rescued from Westgate by security forces.
