The video circulated through the internet hours after the students staged peaceful demonstrations. 

Governor Sonko has condemned this terming it inhuman and urged the IG and IPOA to take action against officers that are now and then seen taking matters in their hands.

“This police brutality is now becoming too common. As leaders, we cannot remain mute when our sons and daughters are being subjected to inhuman beatings by a few rogue police officers, yet the victims were exercising their constitutional right to a peaceful protest." 

"I strongly condemn this incident which happened today at JKUAT where my daughter was once a student leader. I am very disappointed and saddened by this unfortunate incident. Over to you Bwana IG and IPOA," he wrote.

JKUAT was closed indefinitely due to the students unrest on Monday.

"In a special meeting of Senate held today, Monday 11th November 2019 at 10.00 AM, it was resolved that the university closes until further notice," read part of the Memo.
