On Sunday, February 26, 2023, Joyce Omondi, an award-winning Kenyan TV presenter and gospel artist, issued the following statement of support: "[a]lmost 25 years ago, on August 7, 1998, hundreds of Kenyans were killed, and thousands more were grievously injured in a terrorist attack on the American embassy in Nairobi. My beloved father, Godfrey, who was among the innocent injured, passed away in 2021 from major head injury complications sustained in the attack. I am grateful that the victims and their families have not been forgotten. I urge you to support the efforts of our American friends to secure legislation in the US Congress to include the victims and their families in the US Victims Compensation Fund. I hope we can accomplish this extraordinary goal by the 25th Commemoration on August 7, 2023, at the Memorial Park."
