Netizen’s Mixed Reactions On Police Brutality Against JKUAT Student



Juja-based JKUAT students have been demonstrating for a better part of the day and the State deployed anti-riot teams to ‘calm down’ the situation. Students were demonstrating against increased insecurity in and around the institution.

An amateur video recorded in Juja exhibits a few tricks and merciless ‘techniques’ our forces graduated with after a year-plus training on how to handle riot by unarmed citizens. In the video, a JKUAT student named Allan Omondi, was captured in between the soldiers boots and clubs receiving a mob beating from soldiers who cared for nothing about his life after.

The video shows 5 officers violently beating a JKUAT student whose right leg is heavily bandaged. One of the officers is seen kicking his head, tugging his hair, and beating with batons.

Here is the video courtesy of Linus Kaikai.

The institution has since been closed and all students ordered to vacate the premises by the end of the day.

Many Kenyans had mixed reactions on the video that captured yet another police brutality with some alleging that Juja town is full of drug traffickers and unemployed youths that are terrorizing locals and students.

Here are randomly sampled reactions from Kenyan on Twitter.
