Handover of the French Government Financial Support to Garissa Students

NAIROBI, Kenya, November 17, 2015
The Ambassador of France to Kenya, M. Rémi Maréchaux, will visit the campus of Moi University in Eldoret on Thursday, November 19, starting from 9.30am. On behalf of the French government he will deliver the aid to the students that have been injured during the terrorist attack of Garissa, who so far hadn’t received any financial support. Each of them will have their school fees covered for one year and will receive a living allowance for day-to-day expenses.
France and Kenya are facing the same enemy: fanaticism and extremism that lead young French as well as young Kenyans towards terrorism. The handover of this contribution to the students of Garissa, which was a commitment by the French Government, is a testimonial to solidarity between our two nations in their ordeal and in their common fight against terrorism.
