A number of University students in Kisumu on Wednesday held a peaceful demonstration protesting the murder of their colleague Brian Makaba last week.

Makaba, who was a student at KCA Kisumu campus, was allegedly shot on the chest by a police officer he had an argument with on Thursday last week, at a pub in Mamboleo.

Former Kisumu polytechnic student secretary James Jobita noted that it is worrying that leaders from the region have kept quite about the issue.

He called on to the Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett to take action against the officer accused of the murder.

"I call upon the inspector general of police to  sack the police immediately and ensure he faces the law individually," Jobita stated.

The demonstration was led by Fred Makajos the Chairman of Kisumu Students Union Association.

Mr Makajos noted that comrades must be respected since they are the leaders of tomorrow.

"If they kill us who will be the leaders of is here in the university where the layers and judges come from,"he opined

The accused officer Sebastian Ambani is in police custody as the investigation into the matter go on.

His case will be mentioned on May 21, where directions concerning a hearing date will be given.
