Last evening JKUAT students carried out a strike following the death of one of their own in the school’s dispensary. The student was allegedly denied proper health care by the university’s health center after he got food poisoning after eating from a place outside the school.
The students were quick to respond causing chaos inside and out the school. They took to the highway,blocking the roads and stoning the motorists who tried to get through. The police however intervened and got them out of the road with the famous teargas tactic. Their reason was that the health providers in the school did not respond fast enough.
At least this time their demonstration was for a somewhat noble cause.
