The African Union (AU) has strongly condemned the attacks on Thursday at the campus of Garissa University College, in north eastern Kenya.

Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, Chairperson of the AU Commission, has strongly condemned "the cowardly terrorist attack against the campus of Garissa University College, in northeastern Kenya, perpetrated by the al-Shabaab terrorist group and during which scores of innocent students and staff were killed, while many others were injured," said a statement from AU on Friday. The Chairperson is appalled by such barbaric act, said the statement. She offered AU's heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims and wished speedy recovery to all those injured.

Dlamini-Zuma expressed AU's solidarity with the people and Government of Kenya and full support to their efforts in combating the scourge of terrorism.

She reiterated AU's deep appreciation to Kenya for its outstanding contribution to the African Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) and the huge sacrifices made towards stabilizing that country, as part of the overall efforts to promote peace and security in the region and the continent as a whole.

The Chairperson underlined, once again, the need for renewed and coordinated African efforts to prevent and combat terrorism and violent extremism, within the framework of the relevant continental and international instruments.

She reiterated AU's determination to continue supporting the efforts being deployed in this respect by the countries of the region, both through AMISOM and the Djibouti Process on the Enhancement of Security Cooperation in East Africa launched by the first meeting of the Heads of Intelligence and Security Services of the member states of the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD) and the East African Community (EAC), held in Djibouti a month ago, according to the statement.
