Students warned on engaging anti-social behaviours

10 March 2016, 19:01 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - Students joining higher learning institutions have been warned against getting enticed to engage in anti-social activities which may ruin their lives.

A University of Nairobi law lecturer, Prof. Kiarie Mwaura has said terror groups and drug barons are targeting college students by enticing them with huge amounts of money and other luxuries.

Mwaura, who was addressing the pioneer group of students who were sponsored by Murang’a County Initiative (MCI), said some strangers were out to spoil young learners as he asked parents and elders to counsel and guide the youth joining universities.

“We have seen how lives of many university students have been spoiled through drug abuse, immorality and in crime, and this is a sorry outcome for parents and the society as whole,” noted the Professor of Law.

He explained that some lifestyles embraced by college students end up ruining their lives thereby subjecting their parents to agony and depression.

“Parents should not abandon their role of nurturing their children when they join universities. They should continue to guide and monitor their behaviours till they complete their studies,” he advised.

Mwaura, who was accompanied by other officials of MCI, thanked the students who benefited from the initiative for scoring grades which will enable them proceed to university level.

The 32 students from poor families are the pioneering group which is sponsored by MCI to pursue secondary education.
