THE terrorist attack on a shopping mall in Kenya left Moray’s MP shocked during a visit to the country.
Angus Robertson was in Kenya attending a peace event when the terrorist attack in Nairobi happened.
Mr Robertson, the SNP spokesman on foreign affairs at Westminster, was attending the Laikipia Highland Games for peace and reconciliation in central Kenya when news of the shootings emerged.
At least 68 people have been killed and many more injured in the atrocity, including at least three Britons.
Mr Robertson spoke of queues forming at blood banks as local people came forward to help those injured.
Speaking on his own webite, he said: "People here in Kenya are absolutely shocked by the terrorist outrage in Nairobi."The reaction from all faith groups has been unanimous in condemning the terrible shootings. Queues have formed at blood banks to provide the necessary life-saving supplies.
"All Kenyans I have spoken to here are absolutely outraged by the incident. The peace and reconciliation event I have been at in central Kenya was attended by a number of Nairobi-based diplomats from different countries.
"They have been working flat-out to get information about the incident, the victims and affected families and coordinate the response.
"It is a terrible situation for all involved and the SNP joins the universal condemnation of this terrorist act."
The event Mr Robertson has been attending is focused on improving community relations between different Kenyan tribes, and was organised by the world-renowned Kenyan environmentalist and conservationist, Kuki Gallmann, through the Gallmann Memorial Foundation.
