After an official directive from the then Education CS Fred Matiang’I, Kenyatta University has finally closed its two satellite campuses in Kigali,Rwanda and Arusha, Tanzania. The Tanzania Commission for University (TCU) had directed KU and JKUAT not to admit new students starting this September.
Based on the audit report,there were some irregularities that affected the quality of the institution and following the directive from the Education CS Fred Matiang’I,it had to be closed down. More reasons that led to its closure was the fact that resources had to be consolidated.
The institution has finally closed its two campuses in Kigali Rwanda and Arusha Tanzania. The acting vice chancellor Professor Wainaina confirmed the matter saying that they had decided to close the two campuses in the diaspora.
The compliance from the government’s and the education commission’s directive had also been followed by JKUAT who had already closed its campus in Rwanda and went ahead to transfer its students from the institution to the main campus at Juja.
The two universities, KU and JKUAT had been part of the long list of 19 institutions in Tanzania that had been barred from admitting first year students based on the audit reports that revealed some irregularities affecting quality.
