This attack incident follows a few days after Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Somalia Counterpart Mohamed Abdulahi Mohamed have been in an extensive feud and looking for ways to put their feuds to rest.

There have been recent attacks that have claimed lives of Kenyans and security officers, with the Kenyan government holding still and refusing to withdraw their troops in Somalia.

The attack has come at a very bad time, as the country is still in mourning after a mother and her daughter plunged into the Indian ocean, with recovery operations taking 13 days to be complete.
