 Hell broke loose earlier this afternoon in Maseno university city campus as students threatened to beat up an alleged  non student who turned up to cast a vote during the ongoing annual student elections.

Some of the angry students trying to force their way to the room the culprit was being held.

John Otieno is alleged to have received a fake public health student identity card baring the name Amon Oore and was spotted talking to Lameck Ombasa, an official of the aspiring sports director Eric Ojuju moments before he showed up to vote.
The middle aged man however denied any knowledge of the said official he is accused for meeting up with and was further whisked away from the angry crowd baying for his blood by the bedrock security team manning the institution for questioning.

The aspiring sports director camp however refuted the claims terming it as a move to have his candidature disqualified.

Speaking during an interview, the deputy returning officer Dr Fred Wekesa said the incident is not enough to cancel the voting process as the said culprit has since been handed over to the institutions security for questioning.

Confirming the incident, Maseno university chief security officer, Willis Wandei said the young man claimed he came in looking for admission before he was met with a class representative of a public health class who issued him with a temporary student ID and asked him to vote.

Wandei added that the young man has been locked at the central police station for security purposes until the end of the elections as further investigations have been launched to establish the candidate he was asked to vote for.
