Kisumu Polytechnic students on Tuesday, January 5 took to the streets to protest their collegemate’s killing.

The Final Year student was fatally stabbed by thugs on Sunday night while heading to his rented house in Joyland area in Manyatta after watching a football match within the polytechnic’s premises.
