Unusual delays in the HELB Loan disbursement has driven Meru University students to venture a new mode for their survival. Students have opted for a rare species of wild meat from the nearby antelope rich Meru National Park. The resulting effects of HELB- loan.

In a an exclusive interview with one of the vocal students from the University, he disclosed that most students depended on HELB- funds for their upkeep in the campus. He ascertained that most of them came from poor backgrounds thus are not able to afford three meals a day, which has seen most of the male students risk their lives as they hunt for food. Some sell the bush meat anonymously to avoid being netted so as to manage the demanding up -keeps of the university. " There are no construction sites where we can secure jobs as witnessed with Kenyatta and Nairobi Universities ,thus we have to hunt and get a few coins to run our university life" The students are calling upon the government and the school fraternity to come up with ways to mitigate effects of hunger, as students search for knowledge in different institutions.
