Yet another institution of higher learning has been closed following students’ unrest.
The school’s administrators later notified all the students to vacate the premises by 6 pm. “Following the student’s unrest and the subsequent damage caused to University property, the University Senate in its meeting held on October 14, decided that the University be closed indefinitely with immediate effect,” read part of the internal memo signed by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor M.S Rajab.
This makes Pwani University the 4th institution to halt learning over the past several weeks. Moi University, Kenyatta University and Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology are all currently closed over similar incidents.
As reported by The Sauce last month, Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology was closed last month after students protested the administration’s alleged requirement that all students should clear their fees arrears before sitting their examinations.
At the same time on Monday, students of Mount Kenya University also engaged the police in running battles after a student was allegedly killed by a speeding matatu belonging to Kenya Mpya along Thika Superhighway.
