She had enrolled at Rongo’s Town campus as a privately sponsored student. “She first paid Sh10,000, then later paid Sh12,000 before finally clearing the remaining Sh10,000,” Asugo said. But her classmates painted a different picture. They considered her to be a fashion model and even nicknamed her ‘Miss Smart’ because of her flashy dressing code. Others nicknamed her ‘Lecturer’ because of her confidence. Heads turned whenever Sharon walked along corridors at the Rongo University main campus. “When she was first admitted, she was brought into out lecture room by our colleague and we thought it was a new lecturer! And that is how we christened her Lecturer,” said Ruth Achieng a classmate.

The information, however, contradicts what her classmates know about her. Ms Akoth said Sharon had confided to them that she was living in Awendo and that she used to commute every day to and from college. “She was one person you could not have time to talk with because once classes were over, she would just leave right after the lectures,” Akoth said. Rongo University in Migori County is only six years old. Before it became a university it was a middle level vocational institute called Moi Institute of Technology, a constituent college of Moi University.
