Your Excellency




It is with great shock and sadness that I have received the tragic news of the blast at Uhuru Park, Nairobi on 13 June during a prayer meeting of the Kenya Constitution Referendum campaign in which 5 people have lost their lives and many others have been seriously injured.


On behalf of the East African Community, and on my own behalf, I convey heartfelt condolences and deep sympathies to the bereaved families, relatives and friends of those who lost their lives in the tragic incident; and wish the injured quick recovery.


The East African Community is deeply concerned by the tragic incident and condemns the heinous act in the strongest terms. By their dastardly act the perpetrators of this wicked and criminal deed have attempted to disrupt the peace and tranquility of Kenya at a time when the nation was recovering from its post-election violence of 2008 and seeking national reconciliation and reform.


The East African Community wishes to reiterate its support for a peaceful and democratic conduct and determination of the Constitution Referendum based on the informed and free choice of the people of Kenya. Every effort should be made to hunt down and bring the perpetrators of this heinous act to justice and put Kenya firmly on the path of a peaceful, united and prosperous society.


Accept, Your Excellency, the assurance of my highest regard.



Amb. Juma V. Mwapachu
