Missing Garissa University students might be kidnapped

08 April 2015, 19:32 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Missing Garissa University College students might have been kidnapped by Al Shabaab militia, the university's lecturers fear.

The lecturers claim that 166 students are missing from their count and according to parents and fellow student accounts.

According to the lecturers, there is something amiss from the government regarding the number of students that have died in the attacks last week that saw 142 students killed, together with 6 security personnel.

Speaking under the banner of the University Academic Staff Union UASU in Nairobi Wednesday, the lecturers claimed that they have valid reports that the government is dishonest as regards the number of students that died and those that are missing.

" The numbers are not right. We know that 166 students are missing. The government is not telling the truth," UASU chair Muga K'Olale said on their behalf.

A lecturer in sciences at the University that spoke to News24 on condition of anonymity said that there were reports the government had hidden the true number of dead students. 

" There is something that is not right here. We have many students that are unaccounted for and are not in the mortuaries, the hospitals and cannot be found at home. Where are they?," the lecturer posed.

" According to our calculations there are over 160. We ask the government to look into this matter as quickly as possible," the lecturer added.

There were as yet no names of students who are believed to be missing as it was understood that those that have brought the issue up with government agencies have been told to exercise patience.

Security officials in the know told News24 on condition that they are not named, that the reports of missing students are being investigated.

" We have heard the reports and they are being looked at. At the moment, the official figures of deaths remain the same, as do the number of those rescued," the officers said.

In a press briefing earlier Wednesday, the Defence CS Raychelle Omamo insisted that the number of those killed was accurate and that any reports otherwise are misleading.
