Students at Egerton University, Njoro Campus was closed indefinitely after students went on a rampage on Saturday. The students burned and destroyed property of unknown value, forcing the administration to close the Njoro, Nakuru and Nairobi campuses.

The students protested the administration’s move to lock out scores of students from sitting for the exams due through an online system where they are to get their exam card.

Nairobi City Campus Student leader Jame Agumba says the student leadership met the Vice Chancellor Prof. Tuwet to try and resolve the issue but a solution was not reached after the meeting.

The Students are complaining about the online system which they say does not reflect the correct details of some students.

“The online system shows that some students haven’t cleared the fees yet they have,” said Agumba.
The University of Nairobi also had issues on Thursday with their online platform locked out many students who had fee arrears. However, some students claimed they had cleared their fees.
