University of Nairobi Mombasa campus students have warned their colleagues to desist from ‘Sponsors’ after the painful murder of Rongo university student Sharon Otieno.

The students who spoke at their University’s Mombasa campus, Uni plaza building said that Sharon’s ordeal was painful and that whoever relied on ‘sponsors’ should immediately desist and concentrate with studies.

Elizabeth, one of the students said that the incident was not the only one as many may have gone unreported.

She warned her colleagues to stop embracing ‘sponsorship’ as it has proved to be a dangerous way of ‘getting rich quick’.

“As female students we must respect ourselves and concentrate with studies, our parents are struggling to pay our fees we should not pay them back with such painful deaths as Sharon’s,” she said.

However, Alex Otieno said that rich men would do everything possible to protect their image.

“Never enjoy reaping from someone’s sweat, struggle to earn yours, Sharon’s death is a red signal to us students yearning for rich old men and women money,” added.

Meanwhile Muslims for Human Rights MUHURI has given the government seven days ultimatum to reveal the killers of Sharon Otieno, a second year medical student at Rongo University in Migori County.

MUHURI’s Rapid response officer Francis Auma said that the painful incident should not be abandoned but fully investigated.

He said that Sharon did not deserve such brutal murder and appealed to detectives to unleash what transpired.

“We demand answers, all those involved in the painful murder of Sharon must be brought to book even if high and mighty,” said Auma.

Already Migori County Governor Okoth Obado’s PA Michael Oyamo is detained by police.

However, the governor’s office has rubbished claims linking Obado to Sharon’s death.

The governor’s official Communication Boss Nicholas Anyuor cautioned the media against linking the governor to Sharon’s death.

Sharon, a second year student at Rongo University was abducted alongside Nation journalist Barrack Oduor and was two days later found dead in Kodera forest, while Oduor who is said to have jumped out of a moving vehicle is still nursing serious injuries at the Agha khan hospital, in Nairobi.
