JKUAT Main campus student hostel hall six was engulfed by fire one week after students unrest. The incident which took place around 1pm on 16th March 2016 caused panic but group work from comrades and quick response from Kiambu county firefighter finally saw the fire off. However the was drama as students chased area OCPD and other policemen because they had no business there. The students were revenging over harassment of the policemen during students unrest week before.
The cause of the fire is yet to be established but suspected to be an electric fault. JKUAT has been facing hard times this semester after students went on strike last week after death of university student in hands of JKUAT hospital doctors due negligence and lack of medicine. The comrade died of food poisoning.
