What you need to know:

  • Police officers from Kiambu County’s Juja Police Station later found Nduta’s torso and limbs dumped in the bush in Kalimoni, some 20km from her middle-class Kahawa Sukari home.
  • In the past month alone, three female university students have been murdered, bringing to five the number of students killed in the past six months.
  • The biggest challenge the average university student today faces is peer pressure.

It started with a hashtag on social media, #FindGraceNduta. Nduta, a 22-year-old student from Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (Jkuat), was reported missing by her family on January 29, 2017, at Githurai Kimbo Police Station.
