Police say the blast that occurred along First Avenue in Nairobi’s Eastleigh Estate claimed the life of the suspected suicide bomber and injured 10 others who are being treated in different hospitals.
The officers say the explosion was caused by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) and the motive is not yet known.
The Friday evening explosion came two days after another one killed three people along Juja road in Eastleigh and on the eve of the arrival of US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who is expected in Nairobi today, Saturday. Clinton has started an 11-day tour of Africa by contrasting America’s commitment to democracy and human rights with rival powers’ focus on exploiting resources.
