Moi University students at Main campus in Eldoret are rioting over the ghastly murder of a female student Ms Charity Maina. Charity’s lifeless body was found lying near a private hostel rented by the university to house students who did not get accommodation within the university halls.
The gruesome killing of the female student has sparked protests by the universityâ€™s students who have since taken to the streets demanding justice for their slain colleague. The victim was in her third year of study in the school of arts and social sciences.
Students blocked police from picking the body and have since involved police in running battles.
At least a police vehicle has been torched during the riots while several students reportedly injured during the fracas.
Anti-riot police have been deployed at the scene.
