There are Kenyans who feel that the way the rest of the world has reacted to the Paris terrorist attack that left 129 people dead is completely different from the way they reacted to attacks in Westgate and the Garissa University College attacks.
“Are there people who are more important than others?” That’s the question infuriated Kenyans on twitter are asking, more so after Facebook introduced ‘Safety Check’ which allows it’s users to change their profile picture to France’s flag.
Even though international media did not focus too much on the Garissa University College attack, the rest of the world including France actually stood with us and showed support. Check out the pictures below;

While we still don't know whether the perpetrators of Westgate really died, they already have identified who was behind the Paris atrocities

The attack in France was executed Westgate style…Those kiling in the name of Religion are psychopaths. R.I.P to the victims.
