Meru student leader Evans Njoroge, who was allegedly murdered by police will be buried today in Longonot.

Njoroge, who served as Secretary General of the student council, was killed on February 27 at around 1 pm during demonstrations against matters including school fee hikes.

On February 2, he accused the management of hiking fees and failing to adhere to the ministry of Education guidelines. Vice Chancellor Japhet Magambo denied violating the guidelines.

Before he was killed, Njoroge had said,

“We’re here to continue our push for justice. We ask the ministry to look into the fee issue. While other universities pay Sh33,000 per year, we must pay more than Sh50,000.”
