Masinde Muliro University is at a loss after a student was found dead in her room.
The 22 year old was found lying in a pool of blood after botched abortion.
Students from the university affirmed that she had been ill for a few days and had checked into the hospital for treatment.
However, they did not think the ailment was very serious as she was her normal self for days before.
In her third year of Disaster Management Course, she was doing pretty well and very active during lectures with great performances.
Although the primary cause of her death is said to be abortion, police have launched investigations in details on the actions that led to the cause of her death.
Abortion is a topic that has been very debatable in the Kenyan history.
It is illegal in Kenya and any procurement of such is considered a constitutional breach.
However, there hospitals that still conduct the services illegally despite the health restrictions.
Youths and young people are more at risk of conducting abortions due to various reasons.
First, the society condemns teenage and early pregnancies that force these young ones to go for it as the way out.
Using illegal means is more risky as the people who conduct it are unqualified hence may go wrong leading to deaths.
The most recent case of abortion gone bad featured a Human rights activist in Kibera.
It was alleged that she died due to too much bleeding caused by botched abortion.
Abortion is thus a very sensitive topic thus needs proper debates for a way forward or else majority of other young people will keep losing their lives on the same.
