A Maseno University student was on Monday morning shot dead during an Anti-government protest along the busy Kisumu-Busia.
The student was hit on the neck around 5 pm after joining the Azimio La Umoja Demonstrations
A viral video taken by one of the students in the scene revealed that the student was shot in the neck.
The students gathered in front of the vice chancellor’s office demanding action to be taken against the law enforcers but they were dispersed not only using teargas but also brutal beatings.
The demos were peaceful until the men in uniform engaged the students with teargas canisters which led to running battles around the university, despite the heavy rains.
An unidentified source revealed that another comrade was allegedly shot in the arm and was quickly rushed to the hospital for medication.
The chairman of the Student Organization of Maseno University, SOMU, is said to have led the angry students to Maseno Law Courts to demand justice for the fallen comrade but no official reports have been reported yet with regards to the visit.
“We are calling for justice for our deceased comrade since he was just demonstrating peacefully, why kill him now,” said one of the students.
The whereabouts of where the boy’s corpse has been taken still remain unknown.
The students have been advised to go back to their houses as they wait for official communication from their leaders on Tuesday.
