The heartbreaking last message a Kenyan student sent her boyfriend before she was murdered by al-Shabaab extremists reveals the terrifying last moments inside the besieged university campus.
A text message, believed to be sent by student Jane Akinyi from inside Garissa University College, tells her boyfriend ‘in case we don’t see each other again, just know I love you’.
A screenshot of the emotional words, written in Swahili, is being shared widely on social media.
The message reads: ‘Everyone at Nancy’s cube has been shot and we’re next.
‘Where are the KDF (Kenyan defence force)? If they are there, please tell them to come, they are killing us, please tell them to come help us.’
It adds: ‘Babe, in case we don’t see each other again, just know I love you and I will always love you. Bye babe, pray for us. May God help us.’
