Retaliation for Kenyan military operations in Somalia

Kenyan authorities prepared for the gruesome task of recovering dozens more victims than initially feared after the president declared an end to the four-day siege of a Nairobi shopping mall by al Qaida-linked terrorists. Officials said the death count could soar by another 60 or more. Uhuru Kenyatta said five militants had been shot dead by troops and 11 suspects were in custody. He also confirmed that intelligence reports had been received suggesting that a British woman and "two or three" US nationals had been involved in the attack. "We cannot confirm the details at present but forensic experts are working to ascertain the nationalities of the terrorists," he said in a televised address. The Kenyan president said 61 civilians and six members of the security forces had died, while 62 of the 175 people injured remained in hospital. Three days of national mourning have been declared, starting on Wednesday. The Somali Islamist al-Shabab movement said it had carried out the attack in retaliation for Kenyan military operations in Somalia. Somali Prime Minister Abdi Farah Shirdon has said that those behind the attacks "must be held accountable." Meanwhile, Kenya's foreign minister said "two or three" Americans and a British woman were among the attackers.

Born 2 Speak" The Book Available Now"

Nqobile is my name but people know me by different names which I don’t have any problem with that. From a young age I have had a dream to become major success in creative writing, producing and directing theatre. I like writing. I believe that I am the chosen one by God to bring people together, and it’s my command to reach my goals and reveal the truth. Following my grandmother’s footsteps I do poetry to entertain and educate. My works build and give strength to the world. I was born talking, I will die talking, I am here for you and I am your voiceless. No one will conquer me.
This book is composed of different pieces which I wrote before and after. In this I include articles, poems, short stories and my personal reviews which I have done into an Anthology of works and poetry from different cultures for GCSE. Those who didn’t see some of my works, let me tell you something, this is the right time to have a chance to read and know what’s going on around the world. In this book I thought of putting together different genre such as love stories, political, life and etc. The book is available on Amazon copy & paste the link
