Sad as a 23-year-old Ghanaian student studying Medicine in Cuba has died. He has been identified as Erasmus Klutse and he reportedly died on May 7, 2021.
Eugene Oko Richman, a Ghanaian student leader in Cuba told class FM on Monday. He revealed;
“Just this last Friday, we lost a student of ours, a brother, Erasmus Klutse and one of the reasons why we lost him was because of the poor health treatment that we’ve been receiving” .
He continued that;
“And the issue that we have is that the mission here has made it very easy for the Cubans not to make us a priority when it comes to our health because if they had sent an ambulance to him, we feel that his death could have been prevented”.
One of Erasmus’ friend and colleague student tweeted and revealed;
“The body of Erasmus after his death at 7:00 am was lying in the school until 3:00 pm when it was later conveyed to the mortuary I guess. They robbed me of my friend and church leader due to incompetence… Erasmus who died at the age of 23 had a degree in Biomedical engineering in LEG but wanted to pursue his passion” . May he rest in peace!
