Media Release on recent Terror Attacks in Kenya
19 June 2014
The South African Government wishes to convey its heartfelt condolences to the Government and people of Kenya and especially to the families of the victims in the ongoing terrorist attacks in Kenya. The South African Government reiterates its condemnation of all forms and manner of terrorism. Terrorism, in any form and from whichever quarter, cannot be condoned.
Accordingly, South Africa strongly condemns the recent cowardly attacks in the coastal resort town of Mpeketoni. These heinous acts of terror against innocent civilians don't serve any purpose and will only contribute to further instability and ethnic animosity.
South Africa will continue to support the efforts of the Kenyan Government to fight terrorism and promote inter-ethnic harmony and national reconciliation.
