Nairobi - The University of Nairobi has suspended 62 students following unrest in the premier learning institution.

Among those sent home is Mike Jacobs, a student leader who was floored by the controversial SONU chairman, Babu Owino.

Babu Owino was declared the university students organization chairman after hotly contested elections that were marred with allegations of rigging.

Students aligned to Jacobs who got 3, 000 votes against Owino's 18, 000 took to the streets in protest and destroyed university property.
