Kenyatta University closed indefinitely

All students have been ordered to vacate the university by 9am

The University’s Vice Chancellor Prof Paul Wainaina announced on Friday morning that the decision was prompted by the ongoing lecturers’ strike that had ” heightened agitation among students”.

All students have been ordered to vacate the university by 9am. The university had on Thursday rescheduled end of semester examinations that were set to start on Monday due to the ongoing strike by lecturers.

Prof Wainaina  said a new schedule of the semester calendar will be communicated as soon as possible.

The lecturers’ strike which started on November 1 has paralysed learning in Kenyan public universities. The lecturers are demanding the implementation of their 2013-2017 collective bargaining agreement which was signed early 2017.

Unconfirmed reports indicated that one student died during the  rampage as the Old Administration building was torched by fire.
