Parents and pupils hold memories of academic giants as educational standard dwindle

11, Jan 2016

Learning has resumed at the Garissa university college after months of closure following a terror attack. Students were this morning in class while some will report tomorrow. The academic staff of the ill-fated college was recalled last week to pave way for reopening. The institution was closed in April this year following a terror attack which claimed 148 lives. The university, which is a campus of the Eldoret based Moi University, was raided by Somali based terrorist group, al-shabaab on April 2nd in one of the bloodiest terror incursion in the country. In an internal memo dated december 15, the college’s principal prof Ahmed Warfa directed members of the staff that the senate of Moi university has approved the re-opening of Garissa university college during its special meeting of December 9.
