Diana Chepkemoi, a student of Meru University of Science and Technology (MUST) who had gone to look for greener pastures in Saudi Arabia, but things turned sour, has been re-enrolled back to the university to continue pursuing her degree in Bachelor of Education Arts.

Speaking after being received at the University by the Vice Chancellor Prof. Romanus Odhiambo and the Students Union, Chepkemoi expressed her happiness, saying she felt ‘alive again’ after her ordeal.

"Thank you for bringing me back to life, because at some point I felt I was gone," she said.

Diana noted that her story should be a wake-up call to others who are going through similar challenges. She urged well-wishers to come out and save lives.

Out of the many promises made by leaders in regard to her support, one businessman, Rodgers Kimpempe, oversaw her enrolment, reiterating he will fully cater for her university education all through to completion.

He consequently asked others who had made pledges or promises to ensure they honour them to facilitate Diana’s upkeep at the university.

On his part, VC Odhiambo while speaking on behalf of the institution said Diana's story is just one in many similar cases of students unable to complete their studies and achieve their dreams due to financial constraints.

The VC thus called on President William Ruto’s government to keep the promise of ensuring even the dreams of the needy students are achieved.

The student’s union chairperson seconded the sentiments of the VC further calling on the government to ensure that all persons especially students going to look for a better life in the East and Saudi are in safe conditions and their status well monitored.
