President Uhuru Kenyatta is dismayed by the latest terrorist attacks in London and has strongly condemned them.
The President reaffirms Kenya's support for Prime Minister Theresa May and the brave and resilient people of the United Kingdom. The President believes that an atmosphere of extremism fostered by individuals and groups that exploit religion and open, democratic societies is adding to the global terrorist threat. He has therefore called for a concerted stand by states, civil society and all citizens against extremism, to delegitimize fanatical ideologies, and stem radicalization. President Kenyatta believes that such measures are crucial to complementing strong counter terrorism efforts by states to deliver lasting security and protect social cohesion. He welcomes enhanced collaboration with the U.K. and all other countries targeted by terrorists and extremists. Manoah Esipisu State House Spokesperson 4 June 2017
