It is said that the bus was from Lafey Constituency on March 24, 2021 Wednesday morning and was heading to Mandera town.
“Reports; several casualties reported after bus hits IED in Mandera-Arabia Road. The bus was heading to Mandera town from Lafey Constituency this morning,” twitted Manzu.
This horrific message has come as a great pain to Kenyans who reacted angrily to the great loss and terror met on Kenyans through such incidents.
“The perpetrators of these heinous acts are worse than monsters. Why kill an innocent soul because of whatever reasons! I pray and hope that one day these people learn humanity, you have to change or face the same fate. We need to see a developed NFD,” responded Simon Jane.
It is still not clear whether the IED was as a result of a terrorist activity however the region has suffered a lot from such kind of incidents due to the activities of the terror groups like Alshabab. There have been cases of direct attacks of passengers by gangs suspected to be terrorists in the past too.
About a decade ago Kenyan decided to cross the Somalia border in order to wage war against the Alshabab terror group that had been terrorizing the nation. They made tremendous efforts in ensuring that the terror group was neutralized however some elements of that group have still been terrorizing the nation.
As we wait for more reports from Mandera concerning the accident it is almost clear from the photo’s that the accident was tragic and may have left a number of casualties.
