Only three-quarters of the expected 650 students reported at Moi University Main Campus to resume their studies, a development which caused anxiety at the university.
â€œWe are talking about 349 first year and 308 second year-students. So far, we have admitted three quarters of these,â€ said Prof Ogechi, the Deputy Vice Chancellor in charge of students affairs.
The university is however upbeat that the remaining students will show up before the week ends. There had been allegations that more than 148 students had been killed during the attack.
Uasin Gishu Governor Jackson Mandago had demanded thorough vetting of the students, claiming some may be terrorist sympathisers importing the vice in Rift Valley.
â€œHow sure are we that some of the students transferring to (Moi University) Main Campus are not sympathizers of the insurgents who aided the Garissa attack as â€˜inside men?’, he posed.
The students will undertake their orientation today with the dean of students before going through trauma and psycho-social education by the universityâ€™s counsellors until Monday next week.
