Family suffers as blame game continues over failed Strathmore drill

03 December 2015, 21:12 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Police and Strathmore University management have continued with their blame game over the death of a person and injuries to more during a failed terror drill.

The blame game continued as the University was close to being taken to court by the government and human rights organizations over the manner in which the drill transpired.

One member of staff died after jumping from the third floor during the drill while 23 others are still in hospital over the matter.

The government says it was not informed of the drill, while the University insists it informed the Lang'ata Police station.

On Thursday, Strathmore Vice Chancellor Prof. John Odhiambo was at the Lang'ata Police station to make a statement over the drill and despite not wanting to speak to members of the Press, he was still bullish that he did the right thing.

" We have said that we informed the authorities and we have put the evidence out there for all to see," he stated.

Police on the other hand, went mum over the matter.

" The issue is now at Police headquarters. Kindly take it up from there," a Police officer at the Lang'ata station said.

Meanwhile, the family of the lone person to die in the failed drill was left clutching at straws over the matter.

" We have lost a loved one but no one seems to be concentrating on that," Felicia Omino, a niece to the deceased complained.
