Kenya: Supkem Boss Praises Mandera Bus Attack Heroes

The Muslim community has urged Kenyans to emulate the bravery of Muslim bus passengers who protected Christians from al Shabaab militia.

Supreme Council of Kenya Muslims secretary general Adan Wachu said the two religions will continue to coexist and support each other to ensure al Shabaab is wiped out.

"We fully stand with our fellow Christians during this time and shall continue to do so. I call upon all Kenyans, regardless of their religion to stand together against terrorists who wanted to divide us on faith," Wachu said.

"Terrorists have no borders, religion or race. Islam means complete submission to Allah."

On Monday, suspected al Shabaab militants attacked a bus traveling from Mandera to Nairobi at Daba in Mandera county.

They attempted to separate passengers according to religion but Muslims refused to identify themselves.
