The Government of Puntland joins the people of Kenya in their sorrow at this difficult moment and reiterates our sympathy for their loss.

His Excellency, President Abdiweli Mohamed Ali extends his deepest condolences and condemns in the strongest terms the heinous terrorist attack at Garissa University College by Al-Shabab terrorists.

“These killings have absolutely no basis whatsoever in Islam or Somali culture. These terrorist attacks are un-Islamic and inhumane. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of those killed, and to all those who were wounded and affected by this tragedy. Somalia and its people stand firmly with the leadership and people of Kenya in defeating the Al-Shabab menace.” said President Abdiweli.
