Mount Kenya University Recalls Students Amid Political Uncertainty

Among one of Kenya’s premier private universities, Mount Kenya University announced that it would be closing its Nairobi campus amid the political unrest on the 9th of October 2017.

The announcement by Mount Kenya University was met with many reactions online, with many supporting the move encouraging students to stay home and avoid getting involved in the politicised election reforms and the consequent demonstrations.

The institution of higher learning is not the only one that has sent students home until the political situation achieves some sort of normalcy.However, a day later, an announcement was made via the institution’s official Twitter account recalling students back into the Thika Rd campus.

The resumption of studies publicised by the university has scheduled different return dates for various departments with the School of Business and Commerce expected to return last on the 16th of October. In the memo written by the Vice Chancellor Dr. Bibianne W. Waiganjo-Aidi posted on the university’s site, students are urged to clear their tuition fees, before returning to class.
