Even as the attack and hostage situation at Nairobi’s Westgate Mall – which began on Saturday September 21, 2013 at around midday and is yet to be resolved until now – details of the number of fatalities are slowly emerging with reports indicating that about 69 people lost their lives.
Among those who lost their lives is a director at the Communications Commission of Kenya (CCK) Mr. Peter Ldhituachi Simani who joined the telecoms industry regulators board in February 2011 for a 3-year term. He was appointed to the CCK Board in February 2011 for a three year term. Mr Simani was also the Chairman of Kenya’s Political Parties Disputes Tribunal.
