KMTC students protest over rape of colleague

21 January 2014, 15:54

Bungoma - Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) students in Bungoma took to the streets on Monday, to protest the rape of a female colleague on Saturday night.

 The student was allegedly gang raped by unknown  people who raided one of the students' hostels near the college, before escaping with their property including unknown amount of cash, books and clothing.

The angry students waved placards as they marched from the college to the governor's office where they wanted to meet him to over the issue.

Through their chairman Nicholas Kirimi , the medical students protested increased cases of insecurity targeting students from their institution and among other measures called for police patrols especially around their hostels of residents.

 Area deputy governor Hillary Chongwony, addressed the students on behalf of the governor who is in a meeting in Naivasha  and promised to seek audience with the security team to ensure there is sufficient security for the learners especially around the Marrel area, where reports of the students being attacked have been rife.

“ We will visit the college with the local security team and also hold a meeting with the landlords of  the hostels the students stay in, to find a permanent solution to the problem,” assured  Chongwony.
