25kg drugs, bloodstained knives found at Kenyan university

11 April 2016, 21:30

Nairobi - Kenyan police raided the University of Nairobi over the weekend and recovered drugs and bloodstained knives, believed to have been used in the recent protests at the institution.

Students last week turned violent when they demonstrated against the re-election of Babu Owino as the Students' Union chair.

They said they were tired of Owino's leadership, which they claimed had, over the years, been characterised by hooliganism and violence.  

During the raid, police found 25kg of drugs, nine machetes, police sweaters, boots, balaclavas, watchmen’s uniforms, a money-making machine and fake notes.

According to The Star, the operation was in response to claims by the National Authority for Campaign against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (NACADA) chair, John Mututho, that a drug cartel existed at the university.

Mututho had accused the university administration and senior police officers of protecting the cartel, that he claimed operated from the raided hall at the institution.

However, Citizen Digital reported that Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet rubbished the claims and ordered Mututho to record statements for "tarnishing the name of the police".
