THE WORST HAS HAPPENED AGAIN AT WESTGATE
by Erick Omwega
As a child of all, I would like to give my sympathy to all Kenyans. To the loved ones who lost their parents, children of relatives, and their loved ones. Because all of them were important to us and not only to us, but to the entire country. Even if they have left a gap in our hearts, we still must find hope.
Secondly, for those who have been left with injuries, which we don't know whether they will get healed or not, we shall still have the memories which we had together for uniting. It's our time as Kenyans to forgot about our color and our tribalism. We are all one people, one nation. May those who died in the incident rest in peace and may those who survived live long.
Kenya is our country and we must build it. To build our nation, we must stand strongly to fight against those that want to destroy our homeland. God is for all. Pray for me while I pray for you. Let us as Kenyans unite and stick together for the better and for the worse.
MESSAGE TO KENYANS
by Fidel Aseka
We are all aware of the terror attacks at the Westgate shopping mall at Westlands, Nairobi. We condemn the act which claimed at least 69 lives and approximately 170 nursing injuries in various hospitals.
It is high time for Kenyans to remain calm, unite and pray for our nation as the operation of searching for the terrorists is underway. For the families, who lost their loved ones, it is our prayer as a nation that God comforts you, gives you strength, and take heart. And for those nursing injuries, we wish you a quick recovery.
We are confident that we will rise above this issue and stand tall for we have defense forces on the ground and finally the enemy will be defeated. Though we are mourning at the moment, I want to remind us that God has good plans of prosperity in store for our nation Kenya. So let us not be divided on the basis of religious backgrounds as there are claims that our Muslim brothers who are members of Al-Shabaab are behind the terror attacks. Let us maintain peace, have a spirit of togetherness as usual and love one another. As the saying goes, "together we stand, divided we fall."
I also want to thank those who turned up in large numbers to offer a hand of help in our hospitals where the victims were admitted in terms of donations and food stuffs. This is a sign of love, compassion and unity. I urge those who are still willing to donate their blood to our sisters and brothers who are in need of the same in hospitals, especially blood group O- to come over.
Finally, let's avoid using the routes heading to Westgate mall for there are still some shootings and the atmosphere is still tense for the terrorists are still in the mall. This will ease the operation for our defense forces and police to rescue those who are still held hostage inside the mall and arrest the terrorists without confusion.
A CONDOLING MESSAGE TO THOSE INVOLVED IN THE WESTGATE SAGA
by Doron Omondi
Many condolences to those who have been involved or have lost their relatives as a result of the Westgate tragedy. This incident has left others in a trauma and others still have hope for finding their people who are still being hostaged in the building.
Terrorism has been a very difficult issue for Kenya. The Government should now react to terrorism and deal with the issue firmly. Many people have died and others are still being given medication for their injuries.
The Westgate mall in Westlands, Nairobi has many mansions and probably it had many people shopping, others watching cinema, and others were holding conferences. The attack happened on Saturday, 21st of September, 2013.
As a sign of national unity, many Kenyans showed up to donate blood, including some of our leaders for those who were involved in the incident and are still under medication. The Government has an uphill task for the restoration of peace and calmness in Kenya.
All prayers to Kenyans and may God bring triumph over terrorism and protect Kenyans from all ways of attacks.
