Today was a great day for the People of Garissa County and the rest of North Eastern Province for deliberating on matters of security in the region through the Online Platform- Maskani Kenya. The #MaskaniGarissa has trended and dominated the better part of the day. The online discussions brought together young people from the region and have fought for Human Rights and social issues, the Activists from diverse backgrounds. This I how serious our issues were. Today marks the second day since Garissa University Attack. Our day was specially dedicated as part of the anniversary. Thanks to the County Government of Garissa for setting up the monument in their honour. The environment here is o green and I also thank Kenya Forest Service for their inputs. Many thanks goes to everybody who participated in the anniversary. Garissa Community has decided to fully fight terrorism to the last minute in collaboration with the Government of Kenya. Many of the former students almost 32 of them have said that Garissa is their second home and they have nowhere else they will get their daily bread despite the attacks. The University dreams was to have the latest technology and courses that meets the market demands but unfortunately, the 2nd April 2015 attack killed this dream. Still we are determined to bring back the university to its toes. This is a sign of unity, hope and inspiration no matter the attack that happened. I wish to urge the local leaders, parents, and everybody else t get their children and even high school leavers to pursue their education at the university. Without the support of the locals, it will be very difficult to convince any other willing Kenyan student to continue with their education. Within this year, the best advantage we will be having as the people of Garissa is that the university will be charted and this will give it the independence to offer as many tailored courses and even in decision making. At the moment, the university gets everything from Moi University. As a country, we are still stronger and determined to protect our sovereignty and to defend our Constitution and the flag of the Republic of Kenya. I wish to say thank you very much to those who took part. Security starts me, security starts with you! Make this great country and county safer for prosperity and progress.
