Laikipia University Students Riot Over Cultural Festival

Cultural festivals are very important in a given school entity as students from different cultures showcase their cultures.

In most of the schools, the cultural festival also known as culture week goes for a week and most of them end by crowning the the Mr and Mrs who represents the school in any activity.

Students from Laikipia University’s main campus on Tuesday engaged police in running battles as they protested the alteration of dates for their cultural festival week.

This comes after the school administration reportedly changed the festival from a week-long affair – which was previously set to start on Monday – to only one day.

The protests started early morning and crippled transport activities as the rioting students lit fires and barricaded the busy Nyahururu–Nakuru highway.

Shops at the nearby Karuga and Nyumba Tatu shopping centres remained closed for the better part of the day after the visibly agitated students torched some of the kiosks.
