“The President is happy that the 19-hour siege at the Dusit complex is now over and that all the terrorists have been eliminated. He praised the courage and professionalism of the Kenyan security services who carried out a meticulous operation and managed to rescue more than 700 people from the hotel complex. The President says Zambia and Kenya share the deepest of friendship. And those that seek to cause the two societies harm should know, there is no space within the brotherly neghbourhood for violence and terrorism-only peace and respect for one another.”
President Lungu conveyed his condolences to the people of Kenya over the loss of life in the terrorist attack.
“As the hours pass, I hope we draw comfort from stories of courage, selflessness, and of those that stopped to help. These acts will always be testament to the prevailing good of the human spirit. The President condemned the destructive and senseless face of terrorism in all its forms and renewed Zambia’s commitment to global efforts to fight terrorism and preserve peace and democracy knowing that unity in the face of such tragedy will make us stronger,” read the statement.
