Students from the University of Nairobi (UoN) burnt one of the hostels in the institution on Monday evening protesting the alleged killing of a fellow student by security guards.
Kytte Odeng, reports say, sustained injuries from a run-in with the security guards within the school premises last Wednesday.
He was rushed to the Nairobi Hospital but succumbed to the injuries.
On Monday irate students ran wild, lit bonfires and set one of the abandoned hostels ablaze.
The University of Nairobi administration went slow on diplomacy, now the comrades spirit has been awoken. They had the whole day to arrest those mentioned in the murder of RAS pic.twitter.com/QiA6GnkswI

“The guards claim the student was a goon, yet we know him as a fellow comrade,” said Mr Ayoma.
He said that the torched buildings were abandoned hostels commonly known as prefabs.
