University of Nairobi students on Monday, March 9 torched a hostel to protest the death of a fellow student who was allegedly beaten to death by guards.
One account says the deceased student identified as Kytte Ondeng alias Ras was beaten by guards who claimed he was a goon, a position refuted by students who say he was one of them.
Samuel Ayoma, a student leader, told the Nation that the student was allegedly clobbered by guards who later abandoned him at the Central Park, near the main campus.
“The guards claim the student was a goon, yet we know him as a fellow comrade,” said Ayoma.
Ondeng is said to have succumbed to his injuries at a Nairobi hospital where he had been rushed by Good Samaritans.
