President makes surprise visit to Westgate Mall

President Uhuru Kenyatta made a surprise visit to the Westgate Mall in Westlands on Sunday after it was re-opened last week.

The President was accompanied by a lean security team and motorcade in a visit that caught his handlers  by surprise.

The shopping mall was in September 2013 the scene of one of the bloodiest terror attacks in Kenya after Al-Shabaab militants killed 170 people following a three day siege.


Scores of shoppers thronged the Westgate Shopping Mall on Saturday when it reopened. Police Inspector-General Joseph Boinnet accompanied Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero to the reopening.
