The University of Nairobi has rubbished claims that one of the students who was clobbered by the police has succumbed to his injuries. In their twitter page the university termed the claim as fake news insisting no student or lecturer passed on.
“Contrary to the fake news that is circulating on social media platforms, no student or lecturer has lost his life,” the University said on Twitter.
The university announced closer of the institution earlier today citing ‘deteriorating security situation’.
