The situation witnessed at JKUAT on Monday, revealed a more concerning situation of the brutality meted out on the students.
Another video surfaced online of a student being attacked during the chaos that ensued at the Thika Road based university.
In the disturbing footage, a learner from the institution is accosted by a group of unknown assailants during the period of anarchy.
The goons are seen carrying the student and throwing him into a roadside drainage that is full of sewage.
The attackers try to push his head into the murky water when he attempted to fight back.
A similar video seen by this reporter, showed another person in the Juja area being assaulted by officers who had found him at a shop.
Without question, the officers landed on him with kicks and blows and only stopped when he managed to get away from their grip.
Look at this now😭Some #juja residents went ahead and did this to a #jkuat student. Walimrusha kwa maji ya sewage! Juja community hamna huruma kidogo? Are you in your right minds? Dunderheads! These hooligans' faces should be noted na ashikwe. Ifikie Matiangi. #jkuatlivesmatter pic.twitter.com/Roc6Mwxjzc

The incident comes after another film went viral of a student being ruthlessly beaten up by four riot police officers.
The disturbing moment led to an online uproar of the apprehension of the rogue officers captured exhibiting the inhuman act.
Embakasi East Babu Owino, was among the leaders calling for action from Interior CS Fred Matiang’i and IG Hilary Mutyambai on the oppression the student suffered.
CS Matiang’i swiftly responded to the matter and pointed out that the behavior by the law enforcers was against the law.
This is inhuman barbaric uncouth and very unprofessional. The @DCI_Kenya must act swiftly and ensure that these uniformed goons pay for acting unprofessionally. It pains me.#jkuatlivesmatter#PoliceBrutality pic.twitter.com/QlZjwby6nl

On his part, the stern head of national security revealed that he had ordered Mutyambai to address the matter within a day.
The National Police Service (NPS) issued a press release echoing Matiangi’s sentiments.
The media statement given by the IG, highlighted that use of force should be within the law and in line with the offence committed.
The information was however ridiculed by Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Jnr who claimed that the force was hypocritical.
The missing word here is ARREST. If this was an ordinary citizen you would have sent police in several trucks with assault weapons of all kinds https://t.co/cYoanhUWoJ

Kilonzo, claimed that if the situation was being done by a normal citizen the two heads would have sent trucks full of police officers with all sorts of weapons.
