Panic as twin blasts rock Thika superhighway

Panic gripped the city after two blasts went off on seperate buses along the Thika superhighway on Sunday evening.

The first explosion was at a Githurai-bound bus near Blue Springs hotel.

The second explosion was on a Kasarani-bound bus just as it negotiated the Roysambu underpass.

Bomb experts have arrived at both scenes.

The heavy traffic snarl up delayed the arrival of emergency services.

The two explosions came a day after two other blasts in Mombasa had killed four people.

In a statement released on Sunday, President Kenyatta called for Kenyans to remain calm and vigilant in the wake of the attack.
