A section of youth leaders from Kisii County has given the government a 24 hours ultimatum to ensure justice for slain former University of Nairobi student leader 'OCS' Samuel Ragira.

Led by one Dennis Mosoti, the youth vowed to stage protests if the family of the slain man is not given a proper explanation on how their son died.

"The Kisii County youth leadership strongly condemns the killing of a young, determined and vibrant leader which happened in Nairobi yesterday.

"I therefore call upon the police and other relevant authorities to immediately arrest the perpetrators or else we demonstrate in solidarity with our beloved OCS Ragira," Mosoti declared.

A Matter of National Security

The youth leaders went on to outline that killings of young people have been on the rise in the country and the crisis needed intervention from top levels of government.

"We call on the CS for Interior, Dr Fred Matiang’i, to implement security measures to protect young people and students while in universities," he stated.

According to police, Mr Ragira was attacked by a mob on Thursday night during a scuffle at Club 36 market near University of Nairobi.

He had been allegedly fighting for the rights of small businessmen against outlawed Mungiki sect which is reported to be imposing a Sh10,000 levy on the traders.
