Jonathan Telewa, a fourth-year engineering student at Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology (MMUST) was stabbed multiple times by unknown assailants on his way home from school alongside his classmates.
The two assailants in masks allegedly snatched a phone from Telewa's female classmates. When the deceased tried to resist, they got angry and took his phone too before stabbing him severally in the chest.
He is said to have been heard shouting to his mate to run for safety as he was being stabbed. He was rushed to Kakamega refferal hospital where he died a few minutes after arrival.
The ordeal took place yesterday in broad daylight at Lurambi, a few yards from the late student's residence.
Student leaders have called on the police to ensure security in the area since the number of robbery and murder cases have increased in the recent past.
Police are still carrying out investigations.
