Police Bruttaly Beat Up JKUAT Students [VIDEO]

  • On Monday, November 11, 2019, what was intended as a peaceful demonstration turned violent when the police arrived to repel the students.

    What started as a cry for justice over the rampant cases of insecurity in Juja ended with a number of students nursing serious injuries inflicted on them by the police.

    In a video sent to Kenyans.co.ke, policemen could be seen brutally beating up a student. They clobbered him, as some of the officers even went to the extent of stomping on the student’s head.

    In the background, the students who recorded the video were heard sympathising with their fellow comrade, but the fear of what they witnessed stopped them from helping him.

    On November 11, 2019, police officers mercilessly beat up a JKUAT student during protests over insecurity in Juja.

    The JKUAT student’s governing council had prior issued a notice of the protests. The council had revealed that the protests would be carried out in a peaceful manner outside the university’s Gate B.

    “Due to rampant cases of insecurity in Juja and total failure of the relevant authorities to protect comrades and their properties, we call upon all the students to show up outside gate B to evoke a fundamental right of expression through peaceful demonstration and picketing and present our petition to the relevant authorities,” read the communication from the student leaders. 

    It was revealed to this writer that the students held the protest regardless of a directive by the university’s administration calling for calmness.

    JKUAT Deputy VC (Academic Affairs), Robert Kinyua put out a memo announcing the indefinite closure off the university.

    “In a special meeting of Senate held on Monday, 11th November 2019 at 10.00am, it was resolved that the university closes until further notice. Consequently, all students are directed to clear from the campus by 11.30am,” read the statement.

    Here is a video of the heinous act by the police.
