Jomo Kenyatta university of Agriculture and Technology joined the world in mourning the 148 students who were killed in the Garissa attack.
JKUAT Vice Chancellor Prof. Mabel Imbuga led students and staff in interfaith prayers and memorial for the fallen comrades. The congregation lit candles and offered prayers to the affected families.
Among those who attended were muslim student leaders. “Abdi Siyaro, a fourth year civil engineering student of the Muslim faith called on Kenyans to work towards a common good instead of polarizing the country on religious lines. Siyaro who is also the leader of students from Garissa county studying at JKUAT, condemned the University attack, saying that as a devoted Muslim, nowhere in the 114 chapters of Quran is terror allowed or encouraged.”
Abdi was among many other muslim students who condemned the Garissa university attack.
