What started as an abuse and threat to security at the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture on Friday 30th October, 2014 turned into a nightmare for the students especially this girl who found herself in unusual circumstance, her daring colleagues were allegedly throwing stones and abusing police who were patrolling near their rented Digito Plaza. Police warned and threatened and ordered them to vacate campus but this seems to have fell on deaf ears triggering riot. Her plea to have her spared was along lasting truma. BY JENIPHER WACHIE. Each student from JKUAT will have to part with Sh5, 200 for damaging property after the recent riots. Students, who were sent home on November 1, took to social media to vent their anger over the decision to fine them. A directive from the academic registrar instructed final and first year students to report to the main campus on November 10 with the fine. Further, a notice by the administration ordered that students clear any outstanding fees. The university also allayed fears that its 24th graduation would be postponed. “JKUAT will hold its 24th graduation ceremony on November 24, and not Friday, November 28, as earlier communicated,” read part of the notice on the university’s website. Speaking to Campus Vibe, JKUAT student leader Erick Jomo confirmed that students were reporting back in bits and that “everything is calm.”
