UNITED NATIONS EXPRESSES CONCERN OVER INCREASE IN VIOLENCE

NAIROBI, Kenya, January 10, 2013/African Press Organization (APO)/ The United Nations would like to convey its condolences to the Government of Kenya, families and relatives of the communities affected by the current insecurity resulting from violent clashes in Tana River and other parts of the country.

We join with other humanitarian and development partners in condemning these inhumane acts that have since the beginning of 2012, claimed the lives of more than 450 people, including women and children, and displaced nearly 112,000 people. Several others have been seriously injured both physically and psychologically and many livelihoods have been destroyed.

The United Nations would like to acknowledge the local peace and response efforts and the humanitarian assistance being provided to the affected communities. We would like to express our continued willingness to provide additional assistance in support of the Government and other humanitarian actors on the ground.

In the run up to the March 2013 elections, the United Nations would like to urge Kenyans to exercise their democratic rights in a peaceful manner with respect for the rights and dignity of all concerned.
