Kenya Police used live bullets on students protesting bad road

Kenya Police shooting students

According to the angry protesters, the police fired live bullets as they engaged in running battles for the better part of the morning.

Speaking during Live television interviews at the demonstration scene, the enraged learners displayed the live bullets used by the officers who were dispersing them. It is reported that security guards manning the institution were also injured during the scuffle.
Police to be tested for madness

The MMU students went on a rampage after a comrade identified as  Karen Chepkemoi was hit by a speeding matatu while she was crossing the road outside the University gate.

Chepkemoi was seriously injured and rushed to Sinai Hospital, Rongai, in critical condition before being transferred to Upperhill Medical Centre on Monday.


The accident came barely a day after another student of the University - Cynthia Akoth - was killed in the horrific Lang'ata road accident on Sunday.

One of the students was 24 years old Emmanuel Waswa who has a bullet lodged in his chest.

"He's now stable ahead of the operation to remove it," the medic, who sought anonymity, said.

Those rushed to Kenyatta National Hospital have serious bullet wounds on their legs.

"In both cases, one of their legs had been fractured by the bullet, "the medic said.

At some point, police pursued the students inside the institutions until the University administration intervened and urged them to withdraw.


A senior officer present during the demonstration when asked why police used live bullets against students only said: "We have no such report. Let them report to us."
