Riverside Attack: International celebrities condole with Kenyans online

It has been 24 hours since the Riverside attack in Nairobi, and Kenya is unbowed.

Since news broke out about an Al-Shabaab terror attack at Dusit D2 Hotel at 14 Riverside Drive in Nairobi, Kenyans have been relentless to show that we are a strong Nation that will not cower in fear. Despite the unnerving situation, Kenyans online have shared messages of hope and strength with several hashtags trending on Twitter to this effect.

Blood donation appeals and pictures of people donating blood at various hospitals for the victims have graced social media platforms. Pictures of volunteers such as a mama serving GSU officers breakfast and superhero civilian Inayat Kassam who saved lives during the 2013 Westgate attack, are doing the rounds on social media and is one of the most hear-warming pictures at this time.

As Kenyans continue to brave this attack, international celebrities who call Kenya ‘home’ continue to send their messages of support for Kenyans. These include Jamaican artists Alaine Laughton, Konshens, Kristine Alicia and Morgan Heritage. Nigerian music star Mr.Eazi and Bongo hitmaker Diamond also posted that they are with Kenyans in prayers. Ugandan artists like Bobi Wine, Juliana Kanyamozi, Jose Chameleon and Palasso have also expressed their support in this trying time.
