World Shows its Support for Kenya after Deadly Attack

The United States, Britain, and China were among the first countries to send in their support messages following the attack that saw terrorists — believed to be four of them, heavily armed—storm in the 14 Riverside Drive building complex, which has, among others, the upmarket DusitD2 Hotel.

Outgoing US Ambassador to Kenya Robert Godec said that the mission was in close communication with Kenyan authorities.

“We commend the courage of the Kenyan security services actively working to end the attack,” Mr Godec tweeted.

“The United States condemns in the strongest terms the terrible attack at the DusitD2 Hotel complex in Nairobi. We offer our deepest condolences to those who have been affected by this horrifying violence.”

British High Commissioner Nic Hailey, on the other hand, last evening promised that “the high commission team in Kenya will be working through the night to support the Kenyan authorities as they respond to this horrific attack.”

“I have spoken to President Kenyatta to assure him of the UK’s strong solidarity with Kenya on this day.”

On Wednesday morning, the British High Commission said it will remain closed “while we respond to the incident.”

The embassy asked its citizens to turn their mobile phone devices on silent, “and do not put your location on social media.”

The Chinese Embassy, in its message of support, said they “highly appreciates the swift response by the Kenyan security agencies.”
