A Masinde Muliro University don was found dead at his house in Kakamega.
The lifeless body of Professor Ezekiel Kasiera was discovered at his home in Lurambi by his house-help in the morning of Thursday, July 8.
“When I woke up, I found the toilet he uses was dirty so I cleaned it,” the househelp said adding that the Professor coughed a lot during the night.
Kasiera’s death comes barely a week after a third year student at the university was brutally murdered.
According to police, the student who was studying education was first raped before she was hit with a blunt object on the head which caused her death.
“This is not the first time a comrade is found dead around Lurambi, Kefinco and Tizo,” a student leader from the university claimed.
The students took to the streets on Wednesday last week to demonstrate against the attacks on their own and the rise in insecurity cases.
“Insecurity has been very high in Kefinco. This is a very sad case, you’ll find that perhaps the murdered student was the only child her parents had. We ask the police to ensure that such cases are stopped and perpetrators of such crimes are arrested,” a resident of Kakamega told a local TV station.
“Some of the security lights are not working. We even launched an official complaint at the governor’s office but nothing has been done,” a student added.
