Yesterday was a sad day for our neighbouring country Uganda after terror attacks claimed the lives of six people among them two police officers, and the three suicide bombers.
The number is expected to rise as thirty three people were injured during the blast including five critically.
The Islamic State (IS) group has said it was behind the attack, the militants’ Amaq News Agency reports.
Police in Uganda said the three attackers blew themselves up near parliament and the city’s police headquarters.
The attack was a wake up call to Kenya for when a neighbour is unsafe it inevitably means that we are also not safe and Kenya must enhance vigilance.
It is highly possible that sleeper cells are in Kenya and the terrorists are just looking for the right opportunity to attack.
In any case, the vulnerability is increasing, leaving citizens at the mercies of freehold extremists.
Kenyan police spokesman Bruno Shioso yesterday said security forces intensified operations across the country and along the country’s border with Uganda to thwart any terror attacks.
“We are alert at the border in case those behind the incident try to flee here. Locally we are also on alert in case of any planned incident,” Shioso said in a brief statement.
However, it is the duty and responsibility of every responsible citizen in the country to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity to the police to avert another terror attack in Kenya.
