Traffic paralysed on Magadi Road as Multimedia students strike


Three Multimedia University students including their students body leaders have been arrested after they went on rampage blocking Magadi Road to protest a recent hit and run accident along the busy road.
The rioting students have accused the police of not acting after a first year student was hit and seriously wounded by a speeding matatu last week at the institution’s main gate.
The student is currently admitted at Kenyatta National Hospital.
The students also claim Ongataline matatu sacco crew have been harassing and overcharging them.
“We would like to warn Ongataline stop harassing us. You cannot say the fare 50 bob then later change to 100 bob before we reach to our destination,” a student said.
Motorists using the busy road have been left stranded as the police attempt to disperse the protesters.
Police have been lobbing teargas canisters at the students who have been retaliating by hurling stones and rocks at the officers.
