Speaking after being evacuated from Sudan, they were happy to be back to the country as they look forward to joining their families who they have missed very much.
Back in Sudan, the students expressed their desire to come back home as they appealed to the government to come to their rescue.
They cited a number of challenges they were going through including mental problems having been stuck in a foreign country.
Other students from Tanzania were quickly evacuated by their government as they wondered why the government was taking time to respond to their plea.
The news comes months after the government evacuated other Kenyans stuck in China and India.
Air travels in the country were suspended back in March with those ferrying essential goods including medical equipment being allowed in and out of the air space.
Other countries have gradually re-opened domestic flights with the same being expected in the country to boost the sector.
