Travellers to the Kenyan capital Nairobi are still reeling from the attack by a terrorist group at an upmarket hotel complex that is believed to have claimed the life of 15 people.
The US State Department has confirmed that one of the deceased was an American. Terrorist group al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the attack.
The attack on the Riverside Drive Complex, which includes the DusitD2 Nairobi Hotel, Spa, restaurants and businesses, comes six years after the militant group attacked Westgate Mall and 67 people were killed.
President Cyril Ramaphosa has condemned the attack this morning. He said: “South Africa condemns in the strongest possible terms the attacks on the government and the people of Kenya. South Africa extends its condolences to the bereaved and wishes those injured a speedy recovery”
The statement stated "At this stage, no South African citizen has been reported injured in the attack."
