Over 500 students from Moi University have either been forced to pay school fees twice in order to sit their examinations or defer their studies after they were lured into paying their fees to individuals working at the university’s finance department.

The victims of the scam are said to have been approached by fellow students working under instructions from unnamed top officials in the finance department.

A faceless cartel sitting at the helm of the finance department at the Moi University administration block. has driven the conversation in the university for the last one week with tell tales of how undergraduate students, majority of whom are said to be from Moi University West Campus popularly referred to as KPA were made to part away with thousands of shillings.

Two officials have since been suspended from the university with the administration beginning investigations.
