There were treacherous rumors of an attack, but cops ignored them. Months of Al Shabab terror whispers went ignored. Garissa University College turned into a blood bath. Over 150 innocent Christians slain for no reason. Parents’ question the loyalty of Kenyan authorities. Why was the school unguarded despite screeching terrorist threats?
“Alshabab R killing us goodbye” one student text her mother. Somali Islamist military gangs are known for drive- bye shootings, and grenade attacks. Although the college is near the border, everyone hoped the kids would be exempt from panic. Garissa College was anxious for weeks. The frightful nightmares became true. Family members were required to search through the dusky morgue for their kids. The sound of grieving mothers’ still shreeks in Nairobi, Kenya.
Here’s how it went down. 5 suicidal gunman calmly walked onto the campus. A morning Christian prayer was interrupted by gun shot bangs. Most of the Christian students were female. Desperate youngsters smeared themselves with the blood of the deceased, pretending to be killed already. It was a massacre. Why didn’t officials respect the warnings of an attack? Special police showed up 11 HOURS AFTER the slaying. Survivors were transported to a dingy Nairobi stadium, until their loved ones arrived. Cynthia Cheroitich was found 2 days later in a closet.
President Uhuru Kenyatta hasn’t done much to curtail the violence. Is he sleeping with the enemy? How much warning did they need?
“Kenyan cities will run red with blood,” al-Shabab said, according to the SITE intelligence monitoring group. “No amount of precaution or safety measures will be able to guarantee your safety, thwart another attack or prevent another bloodbath.” Therefore, this massacre could have been prevented. Who dropped the ball?
