The US Embassy and IEBC had organized an event called NiShowPower which was to be held at the University of Nairobi grounds. At the same time, the University of Nairobi students had decided to riot to protest the decision by the administration to ban cooking within the university hostels.
11 students who were caught with electrical cooking equipment were to be expelled from the hostels for not complying to this ban that had been announced earlier.
Chaos erupted at night and the students went on rampage destroying the equipment that had been set up in preparation for the event. Some of the very expensive electronics were stolen.
Top Kenyan artistes including Juliani, Khaligraph Jones, Octopizzo, Sarabi, and Sauti Sol had been scheduled to perform for free at the event.
