On March 30, 2023, a tragic road accident occurred in Naivasha, Kenya, which claimed the lives of over 10 students from Pwani University.
Among the survivors was Bruce Amenya, a student who fought for his life at the hospital but unfortunately succumbed to his injuries while receiving treatment at Kenyatta National Hospital.
