Here is the governments statement in regard to the Mandera and Wajir attacks.

Same old statements:

At about 2am, heavily armed bandits raided a Quarry workers’ camp at Koromey area in the outskirts of Mandera town.
They killed 36 innocent Kenyans.

Survivors of the attack indicate that the bandits numbered some 20 people.

In another incident at 8.30pm last evening, 3 masked gunmen stormed Ngamia Club in Wajir Town and started shooting at random.

Immediately, security forces engaged and repulsed them.

Unfortunately, one Kenyan was killed and 13 others injured in the incident. The injured are being attended to.

The Government sends messages of condolences to the families of those who have lost their dear ones and stands by them during this difficult time.

Investigations are underway in regard to both incidents.

A full statement will be issued in the course of the day.
