Nyeri - A survivor of the Garissa University terror attack that left 148 people, mostly students, dead has vowed not to return in the school fearing for her dear life.
Patricia Wanjiru Theuri, 23, said she cannot attempt to continue with her course at the University due to trauma.
Patricia escaped the terror attack thinly after she had travelled home the day before the attack for Easter holiday.
“When the terrorists attacked our school, I was on my way home for holidays. It is hard to believe that some people I knew very well were killed,” said Patricia at her home in Kianganda village, Othaya Nyeri County.

She said she would ask her parents to transfer her to another school in more secure areas.
“The government should help us to continue with our studies in other colleges. It will be hard to go back to Garissa College,” stated Patricia who is set to complete her course in July, this year.
