When yesterday’s countrywide university students demo came to an end – due to the setting sun – Humphrey Ambinda lay helpless in a city hospital with a fractured skull.
Five GSU officers cornered him and others, and, by the time they were through, Ambinda skull was a sorry case. He was rushed to the hospital where he received medication and stitches.
Discharged today, the University of Nairobi swears he will get back to the streets if and when another round of strikes is called by their leader Babu Owino.
“The just battle is right before God, for the 5 GSU officers who landed more than 30 rungus on me, breaking my arm and fracturing my skull, i forgive you, because you are just illiterate D+’s trained to hold rungus, bet you didnt even study computer packages after high school, anyway, tomorrow it’s from my hospital bed to the streets again! Comrades riaaaah!”
Riaaaaaah! Indeed, that’s the sound of a brave soldier – a future civil society maverick.
Meanwhile, student leaders across several universities spent the whole last night and this morning bailing arrested comrades from various police stations.
Here is what Maseno University students leader Charles Juma had to say:
“We have managed to bail out all comrades who were arrested yesterday by the barbaric police this morning.if u know anybody who recorded a statement with the police,kindly let us know through my number 0716914906 so we can help as they want to arrest them bt we will not allow unfair treatments by std 3 drop outs.Acomradeisalwaysry”
