Last week Thursday, students at the University of Nairobi demonstrated against the arrest of Babu Owino, who is the current Member of Parliament for Embakasi East.
From the ensuing protests, there have been concerns and complaints from human rights groups and political leaders that the police deployed to quell chaos used excessive force against the students.
Police have been accused of entering classes and dormitories, beating and torturing university students who were not involved in the pro-Owino demos.
The varsity’s administration has also closed the institution indefinitely “due to the deteriorating security situation”.
Amidst all the allegations and counter allegations, an old video has emerged of Babu Owino preaching about police brutality.
The video, which we believe was taken about four years ago, shows Babu leading a spirited sermon in the campus while armed with a Bible.
It makes for an interesting watch.
