The University Senate on Tuesday announced the University closure with immediate effect due to the deteriorating security situation at the institution.

Students have been asked to vacate the halls of residence with immediate effect, not later than 9.00am.

On Monday night, angry students at the University of Nairobi (UoN) rioted at the institution.

The students were protesting against the police brutality witnessed against them last week when they demanded for the release of their former student leader and now Embakasi East MP Babu Owino.

The enraged students chanted "Mbithi Must Go!" as they lit bonfires during the demos.
