Moi University Students Oppose Re Opening of Garissa University


Moi University Students Oppose Re Opening of Garissa University

The students, led by their chairman Mohamed Halmin, held peaceful demonstrations calling on the government to ensure that the university is not re-opened due to security concerns.

The students, who included a survivor of the terror attack Kazungu Nzavila from Kwale County, asked the government to assist all survivors and ensure they continued with their education.

This comes just a day after the government pledged to support families of the victims of the Garissa University terror attack with funeral arrangements.

Absorbed to university without extra costs

The support will see all the 142 students killed in the attack given decent send offs.

An inter-ministerial committee handling the post Garissa attack operations, has also said Ksh 100,000 will be given to each family of the 142 students.

The government said students who survived the attack will be absorbed into Moi University without any further costs. 

77 male and 65 female students were killed during the attack. A total of 613 students and 50 members of staff were rescued.

Of the 75 people admitted to hospital, 47 have already been discharged.

128 bodies of those killed have so far been identified through finger matching.
