University and College students in Kisumu have protested over what they term increased brutal attacks and rape against students in Kisumu Town.
Student unions in the town condemned the #insecurity in the town and petitioned IG Joseph Boinnet to provide them with sufficient protection.
Kisumu County Students Union (KICOSU) Secretary General Fred Makajos says more than three students had been killed in the past two weeks.
He says two of the recently attacked students, one from Maseno University and Kisumu Polytechnic are still nursing injuries in hospitals.
Addressing the press in #Kisumu, Makajos says the trend, at which students were being attacked, robbed and raped is worrying and called for urgent intervention by the police.
He says several students have been robbed laptops, IPads, phones and household goods among others.
Students Woman Representative Patricia Obilo says female students were abused sexually with some raped within their hostels.
She called on county police chiefs to heighten patrols to help fight the crime.
