Nairobi - 21 students remain in hospital after the stampede at the University of Nairobi that was caused by an exploded generator.
The 21 are admitted at the Kenyatta National Hospital receiving treatment for injuries accrued from a stampede Sunday at the university's Kabete Campus.
The 21 are suffering from various injuries, including breaks on limbs.
161 students were taken to the hospital with most of them deemed fit to be discharged after being taken through tests by doctors.
1 student was killed in the incident.
The incident took place Sunday morning after the students mistook the explosion for a terror attack.
It was later revealed that it was an electric transformer that had blown up.
There are some students who have jumped several floors and are injured
badly. It was a terror scare because the explosion was loud and people
are scared," a student that did not wish to be named told News24 on
The scare comes just over a week after the Garissa
University College terror attacks which have raised temperatures in
campuses across the country.
The Garissa attacks which were fronted by the Al Shabaab terror group, saw 148 people killed and over 100 injured.
