Kenya stands with Sierra Leone


“So our thoughts and prayers are with those whose lives were lost, and with all those who were injured. Even as we speak, there are men and women of courage comforting the bereaved, and doing their best to find, to protect, and to heal the survivors of this tragedy,” State House Spokesman, Manoah Esipisu said in a statement.

He said that the African solidarity remains strong, and that Kenya stands with the people of Sierra Leone.

“President Kenyatta has assured President Ernest Bai Koroma that Kenya will provide any assistance we can” the statement added.

A hillside in Regent, a mountainous town 15 miles east of Freetown, collapsed in the early hours of Monday morning after heavy rains, leaving hundreds of people dead, and over 3, 000 homeless.
