Maasai Mara University students protest against insecurity

10 March 2014, 16:04 Kimutai Langat

Narok - Business came to a standstill for hours in Narok town after students of the Maasai Mara University took to the streets to protest the attack of three of their colleagues by unknown people.

The irate students barricaded and stoned vehicles on the Nairobi – Bomet highway, causing a huge traffic jam on the busy road.

Traders in the town were forced to close their businesses for fear of attack by the over 800 students.

 They lamented that insecurity has escalated in the town in the recent past and no action has been taken by the authorities so far.

However, area police boss Peterson Maelo noted that investigations have been launched into the matter and further assured the protestors that patrols have been beefed up in and out of the town.

“We are optimistic that we will soon arrest the culprits. We have also increased patrols in and out of the town,” said Maelo.

The three who sustained serious injuries were reportedly waylaid by an armed gang as they headed back to the University from town and are currently recuperating at the district hospital.
