Bulla Karatasi: The Forgotten Massacre

On November 9th, 1980, something happened in a village in Garissa county that forever changed not just the history of the local population and scarred them emotionally for life, how it was handled was to come to characterize the entire nation’s treatment of a region that has, since independence, struggled to identify with the rest of the country. Africa Uncensored’s Iqra Salah has been following up on a story that many, including Garissa county’s own people, have been afraid to tell either because of the emotional wounds it opens or the region’s newfound alignment with the government after the events of November 1980.
