Unanswered Questions Arising From DusitD2 Terror Attack in Westlands

By Virginia Mwangi / January 17, 2019




Reality is slowly dawning that our country has suffered once again in the hands of terrorists and 21 lives have been lost and even in the spirit of oneness, we must ask difficult questions to have closure in dealing with the torturous ordeal.

As we mourn the loss of 21 innocent lives numerous questions are unspoken either out of fear or utter confusion. The 14 Riverside Dusit D2 terror attack has reopened wounds that would have been better left alone but then again, the enemy has renewed our determination to stick together and remain unbowed, a state in which we now have more power that no militia group can take away.

It is in that strength that we analyze, the question to ensure we seal all corners and ensure security in our country as the President once said,” usalama unaaza na sisi” (ensuring security starts with us).

Is it time NTSA Clears out all the Duplicate Number Plates?

It has been reported that there is another car with a similar registration number of KCN 340E which was used to ferry the terrorists to Dusit D2 where the attack took place on Tuesday.

The owner of the second car registered under the same number was located at Geojoska Apartments where detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) department went to on Wednesday afternoon. The car was impounded and is currently at Kitengela Police Station.

According to NTSA, the car was light blue in color with its logbook serial number being 2017101601539. The owner of the car has since been identified as Cynkim Investment Company Limited and is registered under the email [email protected]

The car used by the terrorists, however, had a different color begging the question, is it not time the NTSA clears out the menace of duplicate number plates to ensure ease of investigations whenever a crime occurs?

After all, NTSA boss Francis Major, on December had reportedly advised drivers to ensure they counter to check their cars with NTSA to ensure that their number plates are not duplicated.

Where are the Terrorists?

This is an important question that needs to be answered to ensure closure to the victim’s family, friends, Kenyans and the World.

The attack that claimed 21 lives at Dusit D2 was carried out by men, blood, and flesh, where are they? Where are their bodies? Did they escape?

CCTV cameras at the complex show 4 heavily armed gunmen accessing the premise but we are not told of what befell them unlike the narrative with victims.

Is it not more consoling to share what happened to them rather than publicize the horror the victims endured before meeting their death? So, really, where are the FOUR terrorists who carried out the heinous act at Dusit D2?

When will the International Journalists that Splashed Gory Images of the Attack be deported?

We can all clearly recall the manner in which Miguna Miguna was deported from Kenya for his political stand; Kenyans would rest easy if the journalists who splashed gory images of the attack were reported in a similar manner, if not worse.

The journalists from the two media houses, namely New York Times (NYT) and The Daily Express have been adamant on apologizing as NYT even mocks Kenyans with an insensitive explanation oblivious of the victim’s pain.

Over 14000 people have signed on the change.org website, a platform renowned worldwide for pushing humanitarian causes, to have the media houses pull down the images in respect to the victims.
