A third-year student at Pwani University in Kilifi is currently fighting for her life at the Coast General Hospital after she was stabbed by her alleged former boyfriend.
Nancy Chepkemboi has been rushed to hospital after she was stabbed several times at the institution on Sunday.
Ms. Chepkemboi was stabbed multiple times on the chest using a knife. The alleged attacker has been identified as Henry Kipkoech, a student at Kenyatta University.
The suspect allegedly arrived at Nancy's room in one of the institution's hostels on Sunday morning carrying a bag that was found to contain three knives.
He then locked the room and proceeded to attack the woman who was rescued by fellow students after they heard her scream.
The suspect has been arrested and taken to Kilifi Police Station.
The incident comes days after 25-year-old Ivy Wangechi, a sixth-year Moi University medical student was hacked to death by her alleged lover, Naftali Kinuthia, 28, outside the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in Eldoret.
Kinuthia attacked Ivy with an axe before slitting her throat using a knife in broad daylight on Tuesday.
