Drama unfolded at KNH on Monday after four UoN students were arrested for demonstrating against the facility.
About 30 students of the Kabete campus marched to the hospital carrying placards with messages such as “We do not condone ignorance. #Quacksout”.
They also chanted “KNH management must go” as they walked from Uhuru Park.
The protesters were arrested outside KNH’s Accident and Emergency wing. Three journalists were also apprehended for reasons that remained unclear.
The arrests were by plain clothes police officers who took the seven to Kilimani Police Station.
Kenyatta National Hospital has been under fire following allegations of rape, the theft of a baby and the performance of a head surgery on the wrong patient.
The hospital says the two patients who underwent surgery are recovering but a family in Kitale has accused its doctors of being responsible for the death of University of Nairobi student Angelo Miano.
