Ministry ‘working round the clock’ to ensure safety
The Interior ministry is working round the clock to ensure those behind the Mandera attack are brought to book.
CS Joseph Nkaissery yesterday said he has not been fully briefed about the issue, but confirmed 12 people, including a woman, died in the 2.30am incident.
He spoke in Kwale. “The improvised explosive device planted by alleged suspected al Shabaab blew a wall of a guest house. We are still getting more information and our people are on the ground to ensure those involved are apprehended,” Nkaissery said.
He said the Interior ministry is putting measures in place to ensure Kenyans are safe.
The CS disputed claims by residents that police were not patrolling the region. “Our officers were on patrol and that is why they managed to repulse the suspects and protect lives. More people who could have been injured,” he said.
