    East African leaders wanatakiwa wakae chini na kujadili hali ya huu ukanda. It is getting out of hand now.

    unavyoona 'vichwa' vilivyopo sasa hivi ni nani wa kukaa!?
    Hawa jamaa walidhani vita inayoendelea Somalia ingewamaliza nguvu lakini kama unavyojua hawa wenzetu thamani ya maisha ya binadamu kwao ni ndogo sana.
    Hapa ni kilio na kusaga meno tu, labda uombee usiangukie kwenye target zao

    [h=1]Blast rocks Kenyan capital[/h]Mon May 28, 2012 10:53am GMT

    By Humphrey MalaloNAIROBI (Reuters) - A loud blast rocked the Kenyan capital on Monday and television pictures showed a fire raging in a badly damaged building and crowds carrying a number of wounded people away from the site.
    Sirens blared as emergency service crews rushed to Nairobi's Moi Avenue, a major road running through the city's central business district, which would have been busy during the lunch hour.
    "There was a huge bang followed by people screaming and shouting," said one witness who declined to be named.
    Clothing, shoes and blown out windows from a store hit by the blast littered the road.
    It was not immediately clear what caused the explosion. There has been a string of attacks in Nairobi and the port city of Mombasa blamed on Somali militants and their sympathisers since Kenya sent troops into Somalia in October.

    unajua vipi ni wasomalia wanaleta hivi vita. Ingawa hakuna waliokufa, kuna wengi wa magaidi kenya, MRC, mungiki wanachukua fursa hii kuleta vurugu. hapa ndipo weakness ya Kibaki katika uongozi inaonekana. Kufanya vitu nusu nusu Hii inaonekana ni vita ya wajaluo na wakikuyu extended. Alshabaab kesha kufa

    Unaweza kuwa sahihi. Sidhani kama huu mlipuko ni kazi ya magaidi wa kisomali. Tungoje tuone polisi watasemaje.

    ABC News reports:
    Police Commissioner Mathew Iteere said at least 16 people were wounded.

    Another high-ranking police official said there were no obvious signs that the blast was caused by a terrorist's bomb. No ball bearings or nails - lethal shrapnel packed into bombs - were found, and officials were investigating the possibility that a faulty electrical line caused the explosion. The official said he could not be quoted by name.

    "Let me not speculate this is a terrorist attack. It could be a wire fault," said Orwa Ojode, assistance minister for internal security.
