Tension is still high in Bamburi, Mombasa following the night terror that was unleashed by a criminal gang on Monday in an attack that left 13 people injured.

A spot check by the Nation Tuesday morning revealed that some businesses remained closed following the attack.

Traders who opened their stalls, which were raided by the attackers, were assessing damage to their property.

Some counted huge losses following the attack.

CASH STOLEN

Ms Sumaya Karianto, a butcher, said he lost Sh150,000 following the attack.

"I had Sh80,000 in cash which the attackers stole it. They also made away with my business equipment. I took a loan just recently which I had not even started paying," said Ms Karianto amid tears.

The residents also blamed police for slow response after the attack.

"I personally called a police officer after the attack and the officer first asked me where I got his number. How can police operate that way? If they had responded on time we would have saved many from being attacked," said Alex, a boda boda rider.
