Students fight with police

Multimedia University students engage police in running battles

Students from Multimedia University have engaged police in running battles during a protest on Monday.

Transport was paralysed on Magadi Road following the protest by Multimedia University students after one of their colleagues was involved in a hit and run incident.

A first-year student at the institution was last week reportedly hit by a speeding matatu, leading to uproar from the students.

The student is presently receiving treatment at the Kenyatta National Hospital’s (KNH) Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

Students arrested

Police arrested three students as police officers were dispatched to contain the situation.

This is not the first time the Multimedia students have protested over accidents involving their comrades.

In 2016, transport on Magadi and Lang'ata roads were paralysed as the students blocked the roads protesting the death of a colleague in an accident.
