, NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 2 – Acting Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiangi will on Monday receive a report from Inspector-General of Police, Joseph Boinnet on police officers who attacked and injured students at the University of Nairobi (UoN) last week.
Matiangi stated that the government does not condone violence on civilians by security agents and that the rule of law will be upheld.
He further said that stern action will be taken against any officer found to have been involved in the assault of the university learners.
He however indicated that action will only be taken after the receipt of the report by the Inspector General.
It all started as protests by a section of UoN students demanding the release of former student leader and now Embakasi East MP, Babu Owino, with the ensuing chase by anti-riot police allegedly saw the officers storm the university premises in unrestrained aggression.
The protests were prompted by the release and re-arrest of Owino the former chairman of the university’s students body.
The fiery MP, who is not new to controversy, had been arrested for insulting the presidency.
