, NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 27 – Transport on Magadi and Langata roads have been paralysed as students from Multimedia University block the roads protesting the death of a colleague during Sunday matatu accident.

The students have closed a section of Magadi Road and lit bonfires paralysing transport to and from Rongai.
