Security has been beefed up in most churches following last week's twin bombing on two worship centres in Garissa. A spot check on churches in Nairobi yesterday revealed that all worshippers were being screened, with some centres hiring services of uniformed security personnel.
Most churches visited were filled to capacity; an indication that people have not been deterred to congregate by the recent spate of attacks.
The attack on Garissa's AIC and Catholic churches, the worst in the recent past, left 17 people dead, and scores of others injured. The government, Christian and Muslim leaders have openly condemned the attacks being targeted at worship centres, and sought to assure the public that they are not religious war. There was tight security at the Ministry of Repentance and Holiness church, at City Hall with a contingent of six Administration Police officers and tens of security personnel appointed by the church administration manning different points.
