Viral letter to Uhuru has Kenyans talking

By Fay Ngina | April 2nd 2018

A viral letter written by a University student identified as Joy Kinya to President Uhuru Kenyatta has gone viral with most Kenyans on social media agreeing with it.

In the letter, the student speaks of how frustrated she is due to the ongoing lectures strike.

“Mr. President this should have been my last month studying on campus. I should have done my final exams in April. Sadly, it is the 29th day of March and I am yet to start my January semester. As you may know, our September semester extended up to February because of elections and a lecturer’s strike in November last year (The third lecture’s strike of 2017). This, sir, is the fourth lecturer’s strike in 15 months, meaning since January 2017 we have a lecturers’ strike approximately every 4 months,” read part of the letter.

Joy continues to explain how the most affected students are the government-sponsored students.

Here is Joy's full letter to President Uhuru;
