The students had thought that it was a terror attack.
The 6000 sitting capacity library which was constructed at a cost of Kshs. 700 million (approx) is touted as the best in this side of the Sahara.
Videos posted online shows students scampering to safety with glasses strewn all over the main entrance to the library.
Some reports indicate that students jumped from as high as third floor.
At the time of publishing this post, Kenyatta University’s administration had not released a statement concerning the incident.
Students who were injured in the chaos are receiving medical attention at the university’s health unit.
Here is one of those videos.
