14 June 2016, 16:16
Nairobi - Students of the University of Nairobi have hit the streets after student leader Babu Owino was arrested by Police.
The students have blocked a number of city roads while heading to the Kilimani Police Station where Owino is currently being held.
Motorists were seen avoiding roads in and around the Kilimani area in fear of the students causing damage.
Owino was arrested for alleged hate speech after inferring that Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria should leave CORD leader Raila Odinga alone.
Kuria recently hit the news for stating that Raila should be assasinated.
Owino though was not to be left behind.
" Someone tell Moses Kuria that Raila Odinga is not his mother's boyfriend," he is quoted as saying on his charge sheet.
He is set to be arraigned in court this afternoon over the charges.
