President Uhuru Kenyatta has condemned the Monday night terror attack in Manchester, England that left 22 people dead and over 50 others injured.
In a statement to the press, President Kenyatta said he told UK Prime Minister Theresa May that Kenya shares a long history with the UK and stands with the UK. He assured her Kenya will offer any help possible.
“Kenya knows what it is like to suffer a tragedy such as this, so our hearts go out to the UK, and especially to the families which have woken to devastating news this morning,” the President said.
The attack happened at around 10:35pm just outside Manchester Arena. American pop star Ariana Grande had just finished performing at a concert in the arena and the concertgoers, many of them teenagers, were flowing outside the stadium.
Manchester police say the single explosion was a result of a suicide bomber who they say died in the attack. They have not yet released his name.
