Police stormed UNZA following a riot over delayed meal and accommodation allowances that have been overdue.
The law enforcement officers charged to the New Residence which houses mostly female students firing teargas leading to some female students jumping from their windows for fear of arrest.
Some students had retreated to their hostels when police swarmed the campus but were pursued to their rooms with police firing teargas leading to commotion in the hostels.
Confusion brew up around midnight when irate students mobilized their colleagues over the delayed allowances.
The last riot at UNZA left a number of students expelled with the same action likely to be meted out given a hard-line stance adopted by Higher Education Minister Professor Nkandu Luo.
Some students had taken to Great East Road which they blocked with burning tyres and also burnt the business booths by the roadside.
