[By Margaret Wahito for Capital News] [The] Anglican Church of Kenya Archbishop Eliud Wabukala has called on the international community to stand with Kenya as it mourns the brutal killing of at least 147 students at the Garissa University College by the Al-Shabaab militia on Thursday.

[Archbishop] Wabukala said global leaders must come together and seek a lasting solution to terrorism which continues to affect innocent citizens not only in Kenya, but across the globe.

“I call upon the international community because the challenge of terrorism has now assumed global dimension. This thing is happening in Syria, Nigeria, and in many cities of the world. So we must come together and see this issue as not a Kenyan issue, or African issue but a global problem,” Wabukala said during the Easter church service at All Saints Cathedral in Nairobi.
