  • Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria, while attending the burial ceremony of the slain student Ivy Wangechi, unveiled a plan to end the sprouting killings, mostly of university students.

    While eulogising the student he hailed as bright and hardworking, the outspoken MP blasted parents and guardians for pretending to understand problems facing the youth despite the changed terms.

    He, therefore, revealed that he would bring together student leaders from universities across the country to shed light on the problem facing the youth in the current age before finding ways to address them.

    "We need to give our young people an environment for them to discuss their problems. When they find a solution, they will come and tell us that this is the solution.

    "In the parliament, there are at least 20 of us who were student leaders. I have decided to take the initiative to bring them together to work with the current student leaders from the universities. To have a conversation from the youth to the youth first before we invite the CS," he stated.

    He further revealed the initiative was already underway after he engaged a number of student leaders from various universities including the president of Jomo Kenyatta University and Ann Mwangi from University of Nairobi among others.

    While condemning the killings, Kuria also hinted that the old people could not necessarily understand the problems, especially what could drive an educated man to brutally murder an equally educated woman.

    "We are too old to understand the modern world. The biggest problem is what would explain why a young man who is also equally educated would take away the life of another young woman who is extremely well educated," he continued.

    Wangechi was, on Tuesday last week, hacked to death by Naftali Kinuthia moments after she carried out her practicals inside Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital.

    She was buried in Mahiga, Nyeri County, on Thursday, April 19, 2019.
