â€˜Praying for everyone affected by Riverside attackâ€™ â€“ Wanyama
Tottenham Hotspur and Harambee Stars midfielder Victor Wanyama has taken to social media to condole with the victims of the Riverside DusitD2 attack.
Through a message on his Twitter, Wanyama said he is standing with all those affected.
‘Praying for everyone affected by Riverside attack,’ he tweeted.
Al Shabaab on Tuesday attacked the hotel complex in Westlands area, in a raid that reminded Kenyans of the September 21, 2013 Westgate Mall attack.
Security agencies were praised for their quick and coordinated response to save those affected.
Emergency service vehicles snaked their way into the area, with Kenya Red Cross offering on-site and required medical attention.
The victims, who so far authorities have said total 174, were rescued and shipped to different hospitals.
Some of the hospitals that took in the victims were MP Shah, Aga Khan and Kenyatta National.
Fourteen people have been confirmed dead so far.
