France to pay fees for injured Garissa University students

10 April 2015, 15:09 William Korir

Nairobi - The French government will pay school fees for 109 students injured in the Garissa University attacks.

Through the French consulate in Nairobi, the French have offered to pay full fees for one academic year for the students to help them recover from the trauma of the attack that saw 148 people killed last week.

French ambassador in Kenya Remi Marechaux made the announcement after visiting the Moi University Nairobi campus where the students have been relocated to for the rest of their academic stay.

" This pledge is part of the pledge by the French government to stand with Kenya during this difficult time for students and their families," he said.

The 646 surviving students of the University have been forwarded to the Moi University for the remainder of their studies, the government has said.

It is also apparent that the Garissa University will likely not be re-opened, this after many students insisted that they would not wish to return to the region after the terror attack.

Moi University Vice Chancellor Prof. Richard Mibey said that the money would be used to expand facilities at the university's main campus in Eldoret where the students will move to.

" We are grateful for the help as it will help expand existing facilities at the university's main campus," he said.

The government has said that it will also look at ways of helping the surviving students continue with their studies, be it through grants, student loans or other methods.
