A female student of Moi University at Main Campus, Eldoret, was found raped and killed near one of the institution’s hostels. The student is believed to be a third year in the school of Arts and Social Sciences.
The shocking incident happened last night and police are yet to make any arrests. As news of the incident spread across the institution, fear gripped female students with many calling on the university to do more on security of students.
Many former students have told this writer that around 2006 onwards, the institution used to face such incidents where students would be attacked and female students raped by a shadowy figure the students nicknamed ‘mashoka’, as he used to hack unsuspecting students using an axe. However, towards 2011, the attacks stopped but with this shocking incident it seems the dark days have returned at the Eldoret based university.
