He called upon the government to offer adequate security since asking citizens to be vigilant is not sufficient. “This is a cruel provocation, but I appeal to Christians not to feed violence with violence, either in word or deed, because we are called to overcome evil with good,” he remarked.Nairobi Provincial Commissioner Njoroge Ndirangu and Supreme Council of Kenyan Muslims Secretary General Sheikh Adan Wachu gathered at the scene and expressed their disapproval of the of the heinous act.Waweru and Ndirangu later visited the bereaved family who lost a nine-year-old son, Ian Maina. Ian succumbed to injuries after the explosive device was hurled at their Sunday school class blowing the roof off. The assailants escaped on foot in a nearby path.
