“I Condemn the cowardly act, by suspected extremists, that took place at Arabia Boys Secondary School, Mandera County early this morning. My heartfelt condolences to the families, friends and colleagues of those affected by the incident.
I commend the action of our @NPSOfficial_KE (National Police Service Officials) agents in Mandera who responded to the incident and who continue to pursue the attackers with the view of neutralising the threat. I have asked that they share updates of the operation with the view of informing the public.
I reiterate Government’s commitment to provide security for all its citizens across the country and warn those who are out to test our resolve. Particularly, I assure all those who are preparing for KCPE and KCSE exams that their security will continue to be provided.”
