Several students of Moi University have condemned the manner a finalist student Â Alan Wadi was arrested, charged and prosecuted claiming it is steeped in secrecy, arbitrariness and appears flawed.
The students also condemned attempts to isolate Wadi even in prison, wondering why people are being blocked from seeing him.
The students, many who were turned away at Athi River GK Prison where Wadi is being held questioned why prison officials do not want anyone, including family members, to contact the jailed student.
The students are said to be planning a peaceful demo at the college to demand clear answers as to why the university is doing little to engage the government on what hate-speech mean to political science students trained to question comparative democratic processes and cultures within nations.
Led by Justin Safari, the current Moi University students organization secretary general, the learners are now calling upon the government to institute independent investigations into allegations of torture and cruelty that Wadi is alleged to have underwent at the hands of police officers who arrested him in the eve of the new year, and which is making the government to hide him from the public.
Alan Wadi, was a political Science student at the School of Arts and Social Sciences, at Moi University’s main campus. He joined moi in 2010 from Starehe Boys Centre and school.
While universities closed for the New Year short break, it has now emerged several other university student organizations are planning to join the demo organized to compel the DPP to order a retrial or outright acquittal of Alan Wadi.
