President Uhuru Kenyatta said on Wednesday that at least 14 people were killed in the assault, during which one of Nairobi’s most secure areas was punctuated by gunfire and explosions.

Vipers SC’s Sekagya Bashir and Uganda Cranes midfielder Allan Kateregga came out to stand in solidarity with the Kenyan community.

“We stand with you #KENYA may Allah have mercy to all the victims,” Bashir posted on his social media page.

“Praying for my Kenyan friends,” Kateregga added.
