Kenyatta says Kenyans are praying with Nigerians in these difficult times.
Kenya’s President, Uhuru Kenyatta, has condemned the recent killing of Nigerian school children by suspected members of Boko Haram.
He described the incident as a “dastardly terrorist” attack.
In a condolence message to President Goodluck Jonathan and Nigerians, Mr. Kenyatta said the killing was a “heinous act of cowardice that targeted vulnerable children in their most innocent slumber.
“It is with utter shock and indignation that I learnt of the horrendous death of 59 innocent children during the dastardly terrorist attack by Boko Haram at the Federal Government College in Buni Yadi,” Mr. Kenyatta wrote.
He recalled that Kenya had faced similar senseless terrorist massacres and assured the government and people of Nigeria that Kenyans stood by them in prayer during these trying and difficult times.
In Kenya, terrorists linked to the outlawed Somali militia, Al-Shabab, struck at West Gate Mall in Nairobi’s Westlands suburbs in September 2013.
The attack left 72 people dead, among them, some foreign nationals.
