Eighteen University of Nairobi students have threatened to commit suicide if US President Barack Obama fails to visit the campus, Sonu chairman Babu Owino has said.
In a letter to US Ambassador Robert Godec, Owino further warned that 31 female students would urinate on a tree planted by the US President at the university.
â€œMale students will do worse. This will be catastrophic, calamitous and cataclysmic. God forbid,â€ Owino said in the letter released on Monday.
â€œIt saddens our hearts that President Barack Obama is not scheduled to visit the great UoN… I therefore honorably appeal to Obama to visit…â€
Owino requested Godec to appeal to Obama to visit the university, saying they will listen to him at any time of day or night.
He said students and lecturers are eagerly waiting for the US President’s address at Taifa Hall.
