Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta says his country will not allow terrorists to derail its efforts to build a secure and prosperous nation.

He was addressing the nation on live television after Tuesday’s attack in the capital Nairobi. 14 people were killed in the attack.

This after four men stormed a hotel complex with explosives and bullets, sending by-standers diving for cover and trapping civilians inside.

Al-Shabaab miliant group, which carried out a notorious assault on a Nairobi shopping mall, has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Kenyatta says, “We will allow no one to derail or frustrate our progress. No one in Kenya today or at any time should doubt our resolve. Our resolve to maintain security in our country and in this our determination is unswerving. We have prevailed and shall always prevail over evil. Let us now go back to work without fear and continue with our task of building our nation.”
