Student election tensions leads to closure of Rongo University

Rongo University

Rongo University College has indefinitely been closed after tension caused by students elections. The college principal Samuel Gudu says they notified students to vacate the institution premises until further notice.

On Monday, there was tension in the university when students protested elections after suspected arsonists torched a residential hall in the institution. The fire which broke out at around 8am in the morning is believed to have originated from one of the rooms in the hall that hosts more than 200 male students.

There was no casualty in the incident, but property of unknown value was also destroyed as a result of the incident.

Gudu says there has been a lot of tension in the college since Friday after elections of the students’ council was concluded with Paul Frank Onyango winning.

Onyango and a rival aspirant Ali Mafudhi camps have engaged each other in bitter wrangles which has seen a student dead, another attacked with a sharp knife and several injured in strikes, demonstrations and assaults.

Gudu says they had dialogue with students’ leaders following the election results after there were reports of a planned destruction on school property.

Rongo OCPD Thomas Ngeiwa says nobody has been arrested as a result of the arsonists’ incident.
