University to hold requiem mass for students who died in campaigns

03 March 2016, 13:29 Arap Yego

Nairobi - The Co-operative University College of Kenya will Thursday hold a requiem mass for two of its students who died on Monday in an accident at the institution's compound.

Two male students perished in the accident and 32 others injured after a mini bus hired by one of the student-leader hopefuls overturned as it made rounds in the institution.

The bus was overloaded with students, with some hanging on the sides while others rode on its rooftop when the mishap happened at 11am.

"We shall hold a requiem mass for the deceased students at our Karen main campus from 10am-12noon. The families of the deceased students shall attend, and a message by the Education Cabinet Secretary is expected to be delivered," said Principal Douglas Shitanda.

Prof Shitanda in a statement Wednesday said the institution is offering counseling services to the students, staff and parents of the affected students.

"Five of the affected students who are still in hospital are in stable condition. The university staff together with their families are closely monitoring their progress," he said and added that 27 other students have already been discharged.

Speaking to the press when the incident happened, former Nairobi County Traffic Commandant Edward Mwamburi said the driver of the vehicle was drunk at the time it occurred.

The driver of the ill-fated bus, Bernard Njoroge has since been charged in court for driving under the influence of alcohol and 30 counts of reckless driving.
