Amid the election fever,  Kenya’s online community on Monday remembered victims of the 1998 US embassy bomb blast carried out by Osama Bin Laden’s terror group Al-Qaeda.

At least 61 people died in the blast 19 years ago, which heavily damaged the embassy’s building and incinerated two passing passenger buses.

Scores of people were unaccounted for and more than 1,100 injured in the attack.

Netizens paid tribute to those who lost their lives in the blast and also gave messages of encouragement to family and friends of the victims.

This is what they had to say.
