I have watched a sad video. The Kenya police rounding up students at the University of Nairobi hostels and beating them up with jembe handles.
The building in that picture is Prefabs 4, you can see number 4 written over that door. At the time I was there, and it was not long ago, Prefabs was the hostel that housed junior engineering students before they graduated to the fortified Mamlaka Hostels just up the hill. Prefabs also temporarily housed first year medical students before they joined Chiromo Campus hostels.
I put my hand over my heart that if the police were to look for a trouble-maker to bludgeon to death, at the University of Nairobi today, Prefabs would be the last place their suspect would be found.
They are cowards, the cops. They picked the weakest of the weak, went right inside their most vulnerable zone, and unleashed terror on the juniors. We shall revisit that brutality. There is no single day one comrade has ever been molested and the rest sat back and waved the crime away.
If the police want war with the University of Nairobi comrades, I challenge them to name a place and time;
And we shall be there.
