Gambling craze

Ian gichimu

Wondering why students often arrive home late,drunk and sometimes very angry then i have the answer to your question.

Apart from the usual gambling sites like Sportpesa,Bet360,Betika,Mcheza and Betpawa,there is a new gambling machine whereby students spend most of their time.

This gambling machine has a slot whereby one can put a 10 shilling coin,select a team and stand a chance to win up to 1000 shillings.The machine goes for about 65,000 shillings.

The game is too simple and can be played by anyone and so at most times when students are not in class or within the school compound,this is the place they go to.

This game makes some people to be richer while others leave having not won anything but they deposit a lot of cash in the machine.This game often result to one losing a lot of cash and hence they become very angry and go causing chaos everywhere they go.

Some students also go with their school fees or sell some of their household items so that they may get the cash to play this game.People often leave or win less cash that the one they use to play the game.

In Kenya we believe as you give you get more.Most our campus students are not able to pay there school fees ,the only way the students and parents can contribute i buy fundraising.In campus today without clearing fees you can do the exams so whats the essence of struggling without doing the exams?

Most of us in campus have fee problems but we should speak up, our voices should be heard let the politicians be invited to the fundraising events.Ask help from fellow students through activities such as sports so that there is competition that will influence people to give.Personally i have witnessed people doing the fundraising event in Multimedia university,it has really helped students,if 1000 students give fifty shilling the amount raised within a day or a week will be 50000 which is half of the school fees.

This world is all about giving and helping each other and together we can ,lets come together, and, help each other.Unity is strength.
