A blast hit near a mosque in Nairobi’s predominantly Somali region, Eastleigh late yesterday evening.

A hand held grenade is said to have being hurled at the area MP as he left Hidaya Mosque with others after Isha prayers.

The blast killed 2 people instantly and injured at least 15 others, mostly civilians.

Mr. Yusuf sustained varying injuries to his lower body although he is said to be in a stable condition.

Mr. Yusuf is the first ethnic Somali to be elected MP for Kamkunji constituency where the famous Eastleigh Estate is located.

He is credited with improving infrastructure in the region specially constructing roads.

This attack has solicited condemnation from various local and international leaders including Somalia’s President, Hassan Sheikh Mahamoud.
