The Executive Secretary paid tribute to the ‘first-responders and humanitarian response volunteers who are putting their lives, health and safety at risk in the course of rescuing and protecting’ people.

‘At IGAD, we honour the departed and offer deepest sympathies to the displaced and affected communities in Kenya. IGAD stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the People and Government of the Republic of Kenya’, the message concluded. ###
