President Uhuru Kenyatta addressed the nation on Saturday night. He sent his condolences to families who had lost their loved ones, revealing that he had also lost a loved one.
Unconfirmed reports say that the president’s nephew, Mbugua and his fiancée Wahito, were on Saturday shot dead at the mall.

According to blogger Robert Alai, President Uhuru’s personal assistant Jomo Gecaga, his son and sister were also Westgate during the attack. It’s not clear whether they’re still hostages or were among those that got out.

Nation also reports that the president’s sister was at the mall when the shooting began. 

“President Uhuru Kenyatta’s elder sister, Christine Wambui Pratt, 61, was one of the victims in the Westgate Mall when terrorists raided the complex Saturday.
Wearing a white top and khaki skirt Ms Pratt came out running barefoot, distraught, carrying her black shoes and handbag, with a securex guard by her side. She was received by friends and guided into a waiting blue Mercedes, parked on Peponi road.
She was uninjured.” the paper writes.

Sincere condolences to the family.
