Garissa attack: Student saved by early wake up call

02 April 2015, 13:07 Victor Tinto in Garissa

Nairobi - Ali Swabri Hussein woke up earlier than usual to head to his usual morning prayers at the nearby Garissa mosque, not knowing that the early call would save him from terrorists.

Hussein like most Muslims wakes up early to head out to morning prayers but on Thursday, he woke up slightly earlier than usual to head out.

" I'm usually up at 5.20 and leave for the mosque at 5.40 but today I was up at four because I was feeling unusually hot," he describes his morning.

" After I had tried and failed in sleeping again, I woke up at 4.30 and prepared to leave. I left the hostel at just after five and headed to the mosque," he added.

" It is now that I realize that if I had stuck to my usual routine, maybe things would have been different," he agrees.

On a brighter note, Hussein says that all his hostel mates have been freed by security forces but fears that maybe one or two persons he knows well might fall victim to the attack.

" I'm praying for all those inside to be safe and hope that the police can save them," he adds.

 According to reports, the attackers are separating the Muslim students from ones of other religions with the aim of killing them.

So far it has been confirmed that 15 people have been killed in the attack and 56 injured including four security officers.

If in the Garissa area, please send in any photos. They will be highly appreciated.
