Viral ‘Masaibu za Campus’ Hashtag Sheds Light On The Struggles Kenyan Students Grapple With

Kenyans have taken to social media to depict the quality of life in Kenyan universities.

A lot of the stories are utterly eye-opening while others are downright shocking. From stories of starvation to stories of students studying for exams at the very last minute, the hashtag gives an insight into an unsung monster; the woes that students in most Kenyan public universities go through.

Mental Health Struggles

A lot of the tweets pointed toward one pertinent issue: Mental health struggles. At a time when suicide cases have increased exponentially, many people seemed to attribute it to the struggles that campus-going students grapple with. A unanimous agreement about the struggles haunting students later in life came up.

Broken Dreams

In spite of all the woes that the students grapple with, they say, it all culminates in a rock bottom when after graduating, another hard reality dawns on them- efforts to secure a job sound a death knell. Tales of graduates resorting to menial jobs after being unable to secure jobs have been rampant in the country.

Cry For Help

Neglect by relatives and close people was also brought up relentlessly. People called on relatives and those who know anybody who knows of any student to seek them a stipend that could see them through a given amount of time.

The viral hashtag is still trending. Here are a few of the eye-catching tweets:
