Jan 4, 2016 | Africa, NEWS | 0 comments

Garissa University College in Kenya has officially reopened, nine months after the killing of nearly 150 people, mainly students, in an attack by militant Islamist group al-Shabab. Staff had reported to work while students are expected to be back on campus next Monday. Last year’s attack was the deadliest so far by the Somali-based group in Kenya. A police post has been set up on the campus in northeastern Kenya to improve security. Following its closure, some 650 students from Garissa University College were offered places at a sister campus in Eldoret, in western Kenya, to continue their studies.
