More than 148 died in Garissa, Kalonzo claims

23 April 2015, 14:29 William Korir

Nairobi - More than 148 people died in the Garissa terror attack, CORD co- principal Kalonzo Musyoka has claimed.

There has been serious back and forth over the number of persons who died in the Garissa University College terror attack, with the official figure of 148 coming from the government on the number of dead.

However, several reports have indicated that there could have been more killed, with mortuary officials claiming that they had received close to 180 bodies in the aftermath of the Garissa attack.

This followed a claim by the University Academic Staff Union UASU that 166 students are unaccounted for and Kalonzo, ,speaking Thursday at the Bomas of Kenya during the launch of the Okoa Kenya referendum, stated that he is confident the number of dead is higher.

" The 148 figure given by the gov't after the Garissa University massacre was doctored, the number might be higher," he claimed.

He said that there was need to devolve certain aspects of the country's security to help in dealing with the rising levels of insecurity in the country.

The government has stated that it did its best in dealing with the Garissa attack, a stance the CORD coalition has stated is a mockery to the families of the victims of the attack.

" " We are putting the Jubilee government on notice over insecurity," he added.
