Please pass my condolences to the families who have lost their friends and relatives in this brutal suicide attack" the CECAFA Secretary General Nicholas Musonye said in a letter he sent to the Somali Football Federation over night on Tuesday.
"We are always with you in this very difficult situation and we hope that Somalia will once enjoy in peaceful time and prosperity" Mr. Musoney added in his letter to the Somali FA.
