“This is not the first case of such an incident occurring and we are counting on the police to get to the bottom of this and give us the full information. An attack of the student that happened on an open road really reflects on the general state of the security in town,” Dr Lukoye noted
The incident has attracted the attention of the whole country with most citizens condemning the horrific murder on social media.
