Condolences continue to pour in for the 129 people killed in coordinated gun and bomb attacks by Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists in Paris last Friday night.
In Windhoek, the French embassy opened a book of condolences, wherein the Minister for International Cooperation, Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah, wrote that Namibia joins the international community in mourning the loss of so many lives in Paris, France, as a result of the terrorist attacks on Friday, November 13.
“The cowardly attacks at multiple locations in Paris are condemned in the strongest terms. The government and people of the Republic of Namibia stand with the people of France in these dark times and express our condolences and sympathy to the government, the bereaved families and all the people of France.”
Kenyan High Commissioner to Namibia Isaac Njenga wrote: “On behalf of his Excellency Uhuru Kenyatta, the President of the Republic of Kenya and the people of Kenya, I wish to express our profound shock and sorrow as Kenya stands with the French at this time of pain and grief and in all efforts to fight terrorism in all its forms. Our prayers and thoughts are with the families that lost their loved ones and with those that were injured. France will overcome this evil, the world must overcome this kind of evil.”
Turkish Ambassador Deniz Cakar wrote that it is a most tragic and violent crime that took place in Paris on November 13. “This is a deplorable crime against humanity, as it happened also on November 12 in Beirut and October 10 in Ankara and in April in Garisa, Kenya. As Turkey, we understand sincerely the suffering France is experiencing now.”
