Rwanda is concerned with the raid by Somali’s Al-Shabab terrorists at Garissa University College in Kenya.

Speaking at a press conference, President Paul Kagame condemned the killing and said the East African region must step up security efforts.

“The idea of the region working together closely to end terror attacks is pertinent to us,” Kagame said. Reports says at least 147  are dead and 88 wounded.

Meanwhile, President Kagame noted that efforts are in place to end terrorism in the region, including the establishment of the East African joint force.

The force is made of 10 East African countries mandated to strengthen security and preserve peace throughout the region.

“We should consider working together keeping in mind that if it happens in Kenya today, it may happen to any other place tomorrow,” he said.

“The most important to all of us is to know that the danger is there and to face it.”

Kenya has been facing terror attacks for the last four years, killing over 600 people and wounding hundreds.
