Intense Night Long Meetings As President Kenyatta Prepared To Address The Nation

Intense Night Long Meetings As President Kenyatta Prepares To Address The Nation

Many question why the President of Kenya has not come out to communicate on the Riverside attack. Sources now say that the country's top leadership were in intense late night meetings to strategize on how and when to share more information to Kenyans. Top on the list of reasons was to allow the security forces to complete the operation at the 14 Riverside.

To allow complete assessment of the severity of the attack, the Cabinet Secretary in charge of security, Fred Matiang'i announced that he has kept the President in the loop regularly.

In an event such as this, some protocol dictates that a statement by the head of state be done when everything is clear and all rescue efforts are complete.

Kenyans got a chilling reminder of the real threat that is the Al Shabaab, who took responsibility for the attack. Conflicting reports on the actual number of gunmen on location increased tension late yesterday as families tried to reconnect with loved ones.

Reuters reports that at least 15 persons died during the attack and Kenyans continue to wait on the official confirmation from the Government.

Through the night to late morning, gunshots could be heard in the 14 Riverside complex as more people were saved from the offices and buildings within. Police have requested civilians and politicians not to show up at the location they have declared a crime scene.
