Kenya is among the 33 countries that sent representatives to the opening of a US embassy in Jerusalem on Monday, a move that could put it at risk of more terror attacks.

Israel's Foreign Affairs ministry told Qatar-based media house Al-Jazeera on Monday that the Asian country had invited all the 86 countries that have diplomatic missions in its borders to attend the event, but only 33 confirmed attendance.

58 DEAD

Kenya, Tanzania, South Sudan, Rwanda and Ethiopia were among the African states that were represented during the relocation of US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Because Jerusalem is claimed by both Israel and Palestine, the occasion sparked fatal protests in the Gaza strip.

Israeli forces killed at least 58 Palestinians as they moved to quell the protests.

And due to the religious dimension to the fight over Jerusalem, observers fear that Kenya's show might place it at more risk of terror attacks.

I'm seeing some Kenyans on Twitter castigating their government for sending a representative.
They forget that they are one of US's biggest aid recipient in the world.
Something we take for granted like ARVs are super expensive in the developed world, but here in Kenya people get it for free courtesy of Uncle Sam.
Same case with Malaria and many other things.
What has Palestine done for us?

Kenyan government officials sitting in their high office have the bigger picture and know whose toes NOT to step on.
