URGENT APPEAL FOR BLOOD DONATION Fellow Kenyans, We have been made aware of the ongoing security incident on 14 Riverside Drive in Nairobi. I wish those wounded a quick recovery. In the meantime, I appeal to all of us to remain calm and cooperate with the national security agencies as we wait for them to resolve the situation. I have just made my donation of blood and I appeal to all Kenyans of good will to help by making similar donations at the various national blood banks in major hospitals. This will go a long way in helping doctors save lives. As a People, we will remain unbowed in the face of those who would attack our way of life. We remain firm in the face of intimidation and grounded in the knowledge that the Kenyan spirit can overcome all adversity! God bless Kenya! Comrade Babu Owino, MP, Embakasi East.
