Months after the deadly attack in which 147 people were killed in an Al-shabaab attack on Garissa University College, the institution is reopening today.
A colorful ceremony is currently underway at the institution bringing together regional leaders and activists who pushed for its reopening.
College Principal Professor Ahmed Osman Warfa said the reopening of the University showed resilience and triumph over the evil acts of terror.
“The reopening of the University today marks an important milestone in the institution’s history” he said adding that a police post with 25 officers is among measures put in place to ensure security of students and staff.
President Uhuru Kenyatta announced the reopening of the University during Jamhuri day celebrations in December last year.
Most of the university’s students have been transferred to the main campus of the parent institution Moi University in Eldoret.
