President Daniel T. arap Moi's Speech at the U.N. on November 12, 2001
"Terrorism poses a real threat to intemational peace and security and must be condemned by people of good will throughout the world. Terrorism cannot be justified in any form whatsoever. No philosophy, religion or creed can allow the taking away of innocent lives and the destruction of valuable property. The people of Kenya experienced first hand the devastating effects of terrorism in august 1998. The attack on Kenya, a country faced with challenges of poverty and under-development was especially severe and continues to affect us. Kenya understands well the pain of those affected by the recent attacks in the joint States of America, and fully supports the efforts being led by the President of the United States of America Mr. George W. Bush and his administration to fight terrorism in all its forms."
