Masinde Muliro Uni closed following tuition fee related protests

The Senate of the Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology has indefinitely closed the institution after students protested the ‘no exam before cleared fees’ policy pushed by the University.

The university had barred students with a fees balance from sitting for exams which were to start today, Tuesday. The protests disrupted normal university operations forcing the senate to meet and deliberate the next course of actions.

“All students are hereby informed to clear and vacate the University premises immediately but not later than 11.00am today the 12th day of April 2016,” read the statement signed by Dr. C Onyancha, Acting Academic Affairs Registrar.

Police were called in to quell the demonstrations by the students who have boycotted the exams.

Incidentally, Pwani University students are also protesting the demand by the varsity to pay up the fees arrears.

Masinde Muliro University is the second university to be closed in a week after the University of Nairobi was closed following days of violent protests caused by a contested student union election.
