More than 800 Rongo University students which is a constituent college of Moi University in Migori went on the rampage on Tuesday evening bring business activity in Rongo town to a standstill.
Motorists passing through the town from Kisii, Homa Bay and Migori towns were forced to use a diversion for fear of their vehicles getting stoned, as riot police engaged the students in running battles, after they blocked the busy road that connect these tows.
The students were protesting against poor sanitation and lack of water in their hostels, lack of a sports ground and expensive food that is sold at their cafeteria. They also said there is no security at their hostels.
"We are paying huge college fees. We blame the administration for failure to provide security at our hostels," said a student who sought anonymity.
