The 8pm explosion was believed to have been a grenade hurled at a moving matatu near a crowded terminus between Race Course and Landhies roads in Nairobi.

 The injured were taken to Kenyatta National Hospital for treatment as security officers drawn from the General Service Unit and the police cordoned off the scene opposite the former Jack and Jill Supermarket.

 The covered body of the dead person was still at the scene when the Nation team arrived.

 Witnesses said the grenade was thrown at a matatu full of passengers, but bounced off its window and exploded in a crowd of people rushing to board buses.

 A police officer, who sought anonymity, said they had collected the remains of the explosive device, which they identified as a hand grenade.

 The Kaka matatu terminus serves the Kiambu, Githunguri and Ndumberi routes and is close to St Peter Claver’s Church, the Salvation Army Church and is only a few metres from the normally crowded OTC stage, which serves matatus to Nairobi’s Eastlands.

 The last explosion at the OTC was the failed assassination attempt against then popular Nyandarua North MP JM Kariuki in 1975.
