Former radical University of Nairobi (UoN) student leader Karl Marx is dead. Karl Marx, 36, whose real name is Christopher Owiro, collapsed and died in his house. Karl Marx was one of Kenya’s most powerful and intelligent in the late 90′s and early 2000.

Owiro was suspended in 2000 by the University of Nairobi (UoN), where he was undertaking a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics and Chemistry. He was sent home while in his final year by the university’s Senate. He however resumed his studies in 2003 after the Narc Government allowed suspended university students to resume their studies.

It’s also alleged that Karl Max came up with a Mathematics formula that showed that the merger between KANU and National Democratic Party (NDP) would not last. He had enrolled for medicine, changed to dental school before graduating with a pure Mathematics undergraduate degree. He had 13 straight A’s in both first and second years but performed poorly in subsequent years. He graduated after 13 years in university and later on completed a post-graduate degree in Actuarial Science.

 After news about his death was released, a section of Kenyan celebs paid tribute to the fallen hero. Take a look;

@Saliva Vic: Damn! Karl Marx is dead. Dude did his undergrad in like 13 some odd years yo! R.I.P Comrade.
