Dr Fred Matiang’i, Cabinet Secretary for Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government has condemned the actions of police while engaging rioting students at JKUAT Juja yesterday.
This was after there was public outcry after amateur video clips of policemen manhandling students at the higher learning institution surfaced online. The videos showing heavily armed police using excess force on students were also aired on Citizen TV 9 PM News.
The CS using his verified Twitter account vowed to take action within the next 24hrs on the officers found to have used excessive force during the melee that saw police officers engage students of the university.
Matiang’i further claimed to have spoken to the Inspector General of police Mr. Henry Nzioki Mutyambai to see to it that action is taken on the rogue officers.
The running battles between students and police officers paralysed transport along the Thika Superhighway for more than one hour.
