The University of Nairobi has de-registered thousands of students on their website portal due to lack of payment of fees. In an email sent to students, the administration has issued a notice to students who haven’t cleared their fee balances.
“The University Of Nairobi wishes to inform all students with fees balance to clear the balances with immediate effect. Students who fail to clear their balances will cease to have access to all services provided by the University and will be de-registered within the next forty-eight hours,” the email reads.
This comes at a time when students are about to begin their end of year examinations with thousands of them depending on the Higher Education Loans Board, (HELB), which has been facing cash constraints.
How will the UoN students react to this? Time will tell.
