SUMMARY

A twitter user, Sanaan Juma, went online and express displeasure towards the manner in which the administration allowed officers to handle the students

“Police brutality against Pwani University students. The University administration has always acted like they own the GSU”

Pwani university students on Monday morning staged demonstrations in their institution in an attempt to have their grievances heard by the administration.

This activity, however, did not rest well with the school’s administrators who resorted to seeking the intervention of the General Service Unit (GSU).

A twitter user, Sanaan Juma, went online and expressed displeasure towards a manner in which the administration allowed officers to handle the students.

“Police brutality against Pwani University students. The University administration has always acted like they own the GSU”.

“Let the GSU be stopped from causing too much violence before it’s too late. We can’t allow violence”.

The user accompanied the words with a video that showed GSU officers canning students who were lying on the ground.

In a span of two weeks students of two major universities, Moi University and Kenyatta University, staged demonstrations to air their grievances.

Both universities were shut down indefinitely.
