Netizens have expressed their utmost lack of trust in the security system in this country. This was after a fourth-year student at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) was murdered in cold blood by thieves.

His murder comes weeks after Maseno University Students reported experiencing the same in their institution. Students were being killed left right and center and nothing was being done.

In a long thread seen on the DCI’s official social media pages, the student was attacked by thieves who were demanding money and mobile phones.

The attack

Narrating the awful incident, his girlfriend who had visited him at the school said that she had escorted her boo to get some revision materials from his classmates a few blocks away when the gang accosted them.

The girlfriend said that they had had supper earlier and retired to sleep. But Juma (the deceased) woke up at 2 am to study. He asked her to escort him to where his classmates lived a few blocks away to get some reference material that he needed before morning.

Barely had they made it to the other block when they were attacked. Two of the thugs served Juma with blows and kicks as they demanded money. They then stabbed him twice on the left side of his chest leaving him for the dead. The murderers also mishandled the lady who hadn’t carried anything with her. And luckily they left her unharmed.

Juma who was murdered by thugs

Guards who had the commotion rushed to the scene and helped Juma to a local dispensary. But unfortunately, he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Detectives have since established that pockets of a notorious gang, which escaped the ongoing operation to rid Kayole and Dandora of criminals,has found a safe haven in Gachororo, where they are regrouping with the aim of establishing a fiefdom. Consequently, a major undercover operation to completely annihilate the gang has been launched in the area. And Detectives from the Crime Research & Intelligence Bureau (CRIB) and the Special Service Unit (SSU) have been dispatched conduct the operation.

What do you think should be done to ensure students are safe?
