NAIROBI, Kenya Mar 11 – Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka has urged Kenyans to remain calm as the government continues to fights terror after a grenade attack on a Nairobi bus station killed six people on Saturday.

Musyoka, visiting survivors at the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) on Saturday night said that it was a difficult moment for the country but that the fight against terror was on course.

“We urge for calm and we will definitely win the war against terrorism,” he said.

The attack took place at the Machakos country bus station, near the city centre. Earlier, a senior police official who did not want to be named said it was believed several grenades had been thrown at the bus station.

“This is an act of people who think that they can puncture the resolve to fight terror, it is a difficult moment by it should strengthen our resolve and am sure we will win,” said the VP.

Earlier, police spokesman Charles Owino was equally defiant as he denounced the bloodshed.
