The students took to the streets to protest the rise of insecurity around the institution.

Shortly after the demonstrations were quelled, the varsity’s management closed the institution until further notice. There have been cases of robbery with violence at the university premises. As a result, some students have been stubbed and others killed by thugs. Some of the students have accused bodaboda riders of orchestrating the robberies that have left the University’s security in limbo. In February, a first-year student at the institution, Tabitha Muthoni, was stabbed to death on a Thursday night as she resisted thugs. She was walking together with a friend near Segal Hotel when they were ambushed by thugs who demanded their cellphones. After the incident, JKUAT’s management vowed to work with police to address the issue of insecurity.
