    Twin Explosions rock Mombasa

    Police secure the scene of the blast in Mombasa on March 31, 2012.

    At least one person was killed when two explosions rocked Mombasa town on Saturday evening.

    The blasts occured at a busy bus terminus in Mtwapa and a restaurant in Mombasa town.

    In Mtwapa, explosives were hurled at a Christian prayer meeting, fifteen kilometres from Mombasa town centre, at about 6.30pm.

    The second attack took place shortly afterwards at a restaurant near the Mombasa Municipal Stadium.

    At least 26 people were reported injured in the attack at the prayer gathering. However, Sunday Nation could not independently verify the casualty figures.

    In the second attack, at the Stadium View Bar and Restaurant, a police officer is said to have sustained serious injuries. The second attack took place at around 7.45pm.

    Coast Provincial Commissioner Mr Ernest Munyi confirmed the explosions, saying that one person, a woman, had died in the Mtwapa incident.

    While official sources reported that one person had died, unconfirmed reports indicated that the dead may have been four.

    Mvita MP Najib Balala said that a second explosion had occurred at an entertainment spot near the Municipal stadium almost simultaneously.

    "I have heard that besides the explosion in Mtwapa, there has been another one at an entertainment spot at the Buxton area near the Mombasa Municipal Stadium.

    "I am trying to get further details from my contacts who live near the area where the second explosion has occurred. The details are still scanty," he explained.

    A senior police officer who, cannot be named because he is not authorised to speak on behalf of the force, said the Mtwapa prayer gathering was coming to an end when the device exploded, sending the congregation scampering to safety.

    The officer who was among the first to rush to the scene said the incident occurred at around 6.30pm, sparking a major stampede in the area.

    "It is hard to tell whether it was a grenade or a bomb, we are still investigating," the officer stated.

    The PC said that emergency services had been mobilised to undertake rescue efforts and ferry the injured to hospitals. He said the injured, three of them in critical condition, were taken to Coast General Hospital.

    i strongly condemn your view we tanzanian let us not depart from our nature.when your neighbour face a problem first you have to say sorry for him.in the bad situation like this is it you dream to take advantage for economic success? Ammazing!!were are we going wabongo?we will not take over economicaly in this manner.tuwaombee mungu waondokane na matatizo hayo jamaa bado tuna mengi ya kujifunza kutoka kwao.confidence wajamaa wanayo fuatilia mashindano ya zain kwa wanachuo au wakute kwenye mashirika ya kimataifa wanajiamini kinyama.wakiamua kuwa wafanyabiashara wanakuwa wafanya biashara kweli kweli na wakiamua kuwa wakulima wanalima maekari ya kufa mtu na kwa kisasa zaidi.unaona wanavyoimezea mate ardhi yetu ambayo tumeicha na kujikusanya mjini huku tukilalamika hatuna ajira na mitaji? Kama sheria ya ardhi ilikuwa inawaruhusu kumiliki mashamba kwetu uone miaka mitano tuu njaa east afrika kwishnei

    To the tourists, East African countries are the same so do not wish your neighbour bad luck.

    Poleni watu wa Mombasa. Hope the perpetrators are caught and face justice.

    Kujifanya tuna ubinadamu saana na huruma ndicho kinachotufanya tuwe masini kila siku! Kenya wanatumia matatizo yetu kujinufaisha kiuchumi, na hawana concern yoyote juu yetu! Na rule ndio iko hivyo, makosa ya mwenzako ndio advantage yako wewe! Haya yanayotokea Kenya sio jambo la ghafla, ni matokeo yanayotokana na maamuzi ya wo wenyewe kenya!

    naungana na wewe kuwa kenya hawatujaki na haitakaa itokee kutujali.huu ni ukweli uliinyooka na yafaa usemwe waziwazi.

    Lakini tukumbuke kuwa hata sisi tumefanya maamuzi ambayo yataweza kutupeleka huku huku kenya ilipo.
    Tumejitolea kuhost mahakama ya makosa ya kigaidi ya wasomali.
