DCI HUNTING STUDENTS OVER LOVE AFFAIR ASSAULT
The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) ordered investigations into a video circulating on social media showing two students of Technical University of Mombasa beating a colleague.
In a video that has since gone viral in several social media platforms with an #justiceforalloys, the victim was made to kneel down, slapped and asked to explain why he kissed a girl named Angel.
In the second video, the victim (Alloys) is seen lying on the floor while two young men identified as Cedric and Chiga, (first year students), are whipping him.
A source from the institution told that the victim was first taken to a barber to get shaved before the assault.
TUM students’ president Jurist Muchiri said the institution had taken action on the matter.
“The administration has suspended Cedric and Chiga and subsequently deregistered them from the student portal. They will appear, before the university’s disciplinary committee,” Mr Muchiri said.
