GSU Officer Joseph Nthenge Who Stunned Protesters With Sense of Reason


On December 29th 2007, enraged youth in Mathare had set a petrol station ablaze, burnt a vehicle and destroyed property. They weren’t done. They wanted more damage and were headed to the city center. But their mission would be curtailed by a GSU officer-Joseph Nthenge.

The officer, instead of aiming his gun at the protesters, chose a different method of engaging with the protesters-reasoning with them.
