Kamuthe attack survivor (a teacher) has vowed never to go back to work. He narrated the nasty ordeal of killer Alshabaab
In a suspected Alshabaab attack that took place on Monday, January 13th at around midday where life of three teachers was cut short.
Joshua Mwangangi, who thanks his creator(God) for being alive today, narrated the early morning horrible saga that left three of his colleagues dead.
“We were asleep when we suddenly heard huge bangs and before we could realize, gun shots filled the air” recalled Joshua.
According to Joshua, the suspected Millitia shot at their doors in a bid to force them to open the door and when that failed, they used unknown objects to open the doors.
They then got into the rooms where only male teachers were sleeping, took positions and mercilessly shot at the non-Muslim teachers.
“The armed men were so many and because we had no weapons we had to run to save our lives,” remarked Mwangangi.
As he ran, two bullets caught him on the thigh and below the ankle, injuries he is still nursing.
“Although the bullets were removed from my body, I am lucky none struck me in any of my bones,” said Joshua.
Mwangangi who had taught in the school for close to two years and hails from Kandwia area of Kyuso ward, was lucky to survive the deadly attack after he ran to the bushes where he stayed till he was rescued by good Samaritans and rushed to hospital.
Felix Kimanzi, also a teacher in Garissa county who hails from Kitui West sub county stated that he can never go back to his working station following what happened to his three close friends.
Kimanzi, who knew the late Sammy Muthui since childhood said it was a big blow to him, the teaching fraternity and mostly, his family.
The teachers who were attended their colleague’s [Sammy Muthui] send-off eulogized him as a calm, God loving, peaceful and very friendly young man adding they will miss him.
According to Felix, as teachers posted in insecurity prone areas, they want government to ensure their security is addressed before they report back to work.
“Our bosses want us to report back to school but how do we do that when our lives are at the verge of being taken away by the cruel militia?” asked Felix
