The University of Nairobi (#UoN) Students are Currently rioting and set fire at the SWA Offices. SWA Offices have most of the documents that belong to the students and it would be devastating if the offices are burnt to the ground.

Speaking to a local daily, Samuel Ayoma, a student leader, said that the guards clobbered the student and abandoned him at the Central Park, near the main campus.
“The guards claim the student was a goon, yet we know him as a fellow comrade,” said Mr Ayoma.
The torched buildings were abandoned hostels commonly known as prefabs.
