  4. Age issue. A uni student committing suicide due to a quarrel with the mother? Poor clever lives are being wasted and reduced to nothing every day. The sharp minds the nation should rely on in the future goind to waste due to small issues. 8-4-4 system is to blame for all this mess. Kids are being adimeted to campus only to go and waste themselves to suicide and prostitution. Where is Kenya headed? Some1 should do something soon. So sorry to the family for the big loss.
