University students protest over delayed HELB cash



Students in most public universities have gone on strike to protest the delay in the release of their loans by the government.

At the University of Nairobi, students have blocked University Way and adjacent roads, demanding the immediate release of the funds by the Higher Education Loans Board.

Their counterparts from the Technical University of Kenya have also blocked Haille Sellasie Avenue over similar grievances.

In Mombasa students from the Technical University are also on the rampage and have blocked roads in Tudor area.

The strike was announced last week by leaders of the university unions who have vowed to paralyse learning until the funds are released.
