Nairobi Continues To Bleed. What We Know So Far About The Latema Road Explosion


Nairobi Continues To Bleed. What We Know So Far About The Latema Road Explosion

According to Nairobi Police boss Philip Ndolo, a woman of Somali origin hired a cart pusher to help her carry a luggage but stopped him midway at Odeon Cinema, Latema Road, claiming she had left her ID at a certain stall.
As the cart pusher waited for the woman to go for her ID, there was a very loud explosion that emanated from the small box he was carrying on his cart.
The cart pusher and a newspaper vendor who was standing nearby sustained small injuries. The cart pusher had his right hand injured while the newspaper vendor had his right leg injured.
Nairobi security head Philip Ndolo confirmed that no other person was injured and he advised cart pushers to verify the contents of the luggage they carried for people to reduce the chances of such incidences happening again.
The bag also had a lot of nails alongside the improvised explosive device. This understandably was meant to increase the damage caused by the explosive device.
The woman had paid the cart pusher Sh100 upfront and neither meant attempts to bargain nor seek to pay after the service was rendered as many Nairobians prefer to.
This attack awakens the memories of six years ago when such attacks were common in the city. A grenade that went off in Gikomba open market killed several at that time.
