On May 16th, 2014, at least 10 people were been killed and scores more injured in a twin bombing in the Kenyan capital Nairobi. The first explosion occurred in a minibus, the second in the large open-air Gikomba market.
Luckily, no ISKCON devotees were injured.
On May 18th, amid bomb blasts and terror attack threats, Nairobi ISKCON had a very peaceful and jubilant initiation ceremony. ISKCON-guru Gopal Krishna Goswami gave spiritual initiation to 38 devotees. 26 of them took Harinam initiation, while 12 devotees took Brahmin initiation.
Most of them were from Nairobi, Kenya; one devotee was from Arusha Tanzania, another devotee was from Mombas, Kenya.
Gopal Krishna Goswami who is the ISKCON Governing Body Commissioner for East Africa, is now on a 10-day visit to Kenya and Uganda.
