As we speak, students from Multimedia University of Kenya (MMU) have paralyzed transport along Magadi Road and are engaging police in running battles.

The protests were ignited by deaths of two of their colleagues who were killed right outside the institution's gate.

Cynthia Akoth - a first year student at the university - passed away on Sunday after being ran over by a matatu while another by the name Karen Chepkemoi sustained injuries.

Preliminary investigations into the Sunday incident showed the driver was drunk and was driving on high speed before the bus overturned.

The students have been protesting for more than three hours and unconfirmed reports indicate that that two students have been shot, one in the stomach and the other in the leg.
