The students were demonstrating increased school fees payment by Ksh 6,000 which they say was implemented without involving them.

They continued by accusing the management of suspending all mechanical engineering students for apparently no reason.

As at 10 am, the police were forced to lobby teargas in the air so as to disperse the students who caused panic in the city.

Residents of Makasembo, Kaloleni and Polyview were caught in the mix forcing them to scamper for safety.
