Your Excellency,

RE: CONDOLENCE MESSAGE ON THE DEATH THROUGH A TERRORIST ATTACK OF 11 KENYA POLICE OFFICERS

It is with profound shock and grief that we at the East African Community have received the sad news of the demise through a terrorist attack of 11 police officers from the paramilitary General Service Unit (GSU) in Garissa County, Kenya on Saturday, 12th October, 2019.

On behalf of the East African Community and on my own behalf, I convey my heartfelt condolences to your Excellency, and through you to: the bereaved families, relatives and friends of the security officers; the National Police Service, the Government, and; the people of Kenya.

We mourn the demise of these brave officers from the GSU’s Harehare Camp, who we learned lost their lives while on the line of duty along the Kenya-Somalia border.

The incident is a stark reminder of the threat posed by terrorists to peace and security in the East African region and the need for Partner States and neighbouring countries to sustain cooperate and maintain vigilance to counter the menace. 

The entire EAC and I share with the bereaved families, and the Government and people of Kenya, the feelings of great loss at this time of deep sorrow.

MAY THE ALMIGHTY GOD REST THE SOULS OF THE DEPARTED IN ETERNAL PEACE
