Maseno University Goes On Strike !

Maseno University has been closed indefinitely following riots by students over alleged rape cases in and off campus.

In a statement on Sunday evening, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof Julius Nyabundi, said: “Following unrest by students over alleged rape cases reported to have occurred in and off campus [and] students’ residences, and failure by the students to engage university management on structured discussions on the same; the Senate has resolved to close the university with immediate effect until further notice.”

The students were ordered to vacate the university premises by 7.30pm.

The Nyanza Regional Police boss, Dr Vincent Makokha, told Nation the wrangles between the new and old student leadership might have led to the riots.

“The riots could have been [stage] managed. A section of the students were not prepared for the ongoing exams,” Dr Makokha said.

“We have discussed with the university administration to close the institution. Right now, we are ensuring that the students get out of the university without destroying property,” he added.
