Worry as more young University students kiss the casket.

Kenyan Universities are in a sombre mood as seven Universities record at least the death of one student this month.

The rate at which University students are dying is at an alarming rate, recent records indicate that at least 10% of the Kenya Universities have lost one and or two students in a period of one week.

Maseno University, Pwani University, Moi University, University of Nairobi, University of Embu, Tharaka University, African Nazarene have lost at least one student this month.

Brutality and cruelty have also led to the demise of some Comrades. Samson Makori Oyaro aka Ogwatan Noon a fast-rising musician and a third-year student at the University of Nairobi was found seriously injured with broken limbs and blood all over him at hall 1. Samson was then rushed to Kenyatta Hospital where he was announced dead on arrival.

The suicide rates in Kenyan Universities is currently rising up with no end in sight. The government needs to act quickly to find a lasting solution or else more students will become victims.

We (Comrade News) wish to express our heartfelt condolences to the families and friends of the heroes who left us too soon.
