Garissa University likely not to open again

08 April 2015, 13:08 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Garissa University College is likely not to open again, it has emerged.

The College, fresh from the terror attack that saw 148 people killed on its premises last week has now been closed indefinitely as the trauma of the attack slowly settles in.

The university had close to 1,000 students and 60 members of staff and according to Defence CS Raychelle Omamo, they have all been transferred to Moi University to continue with their studies.

" They have all been moved to Moi University to continue with their studies, Omamo said Wednesday of the survivors of the grisly attack.

" The traumatic scenes as you know will always haunt the survivors and so to ease their healing process it will be best to move them to a different institution," she added.

As for the fate of the institution itself, it is likely it will not be opened again.

" It is closed indefinitely," Education CS Jacob Kaimenyi said.

" It is likely to be a long process and we will need to decide whether it is a good move to re-open it in future, but for now it remains closed ".

" Yes, there is a chance it will not be opened again. It is possible but too early to say for a fact," he added.

The closure of the University will be a huge dent to the town as the students were a big source of commerce and business for the region.

Many students that News24 spoke to had already stated that they would not return to the institution for their studies.
