Yesterday, terrorists struck Dusit 2 Hotel located on 14 Riverside Drive in Nairobi with sports journalist James Oduor among the victims, while hundreds sustained injuries.

“The midweek and weekend matches will go on as scheduled, we haven’t received any communication froom the government security agencies that warrant the postponement of the matches so they will go on as planned,” said Oguda.
