This adds to many incidences of growing insecurity among Kenyan Universities.

Jomo Kenyatta University of Science and Technology (JKUAT) has been a victim of this.

In the first 15 days of November, 10 JKUAT students had been waylaid on their way from school. Some incidents were reported as early as 4pm.

The University was indefinitely shut down following a protest staged by students over insecurity in the institution and its surrounding areas.

A day before the protest, the student association leadership met top security officials in the area and the meeting resolution was that security agents would look into the situation.
