Incidents where young Kenyans have been killed have been on the rise in the recent past with the government doing its best to bring these incidents down.
University and college students have suffered the brunt of these murders which have left very promising young Kenyans dead instead of helping the country someday.
A few years back, a Moi University student who was studying medicine was hacked to death by her ex boyfriend outside the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital.
This evening, according to the available reliable reports that we have received from The Star Newspaper, a Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology medicine student is said to have been killed by people who were known to her.
Her body was found dumped in a forest that is next to the Aturkan Hotel which is in Kitale Town, Trans Nzoia County.
She has been identified as 27-year-old Maurine Machuma Sikuku who was a third year medicine student at the JKUAT university that is found in Juja, Kiambu County.
Investigations into the killing of the student have begun with police optimistic that they will find the real killers.
