Program Title: Garissa
Description: This past Thursday four gunmen attacked the Garissa University College campus in Kenya, killing 148 people. Al-Shabab has claimed responsibility for the attack and is the armed group’s bloodiest attack to date. We speak with Farid Omar about the attack; he historicizes Al-Shabab within the context of years of conflicting relationships between Kenya and Somalia, and the increasing militarization of the Kenyan state, espeically the increased security and survaillance of Somali Kenyans and Muslim Kenyans.
