ICC Note

Due to the upcoming presidential elections in Kenya, which are a repeat of the elections held earlier this year, the University of Nairobi is being closed indefinitely. Students have been made to leave campus and return home for and undetermined amount of time. This comes just one week after many of the students on the campus protested. 27 students were hurt during this protest and made tensions in the country even worse. This has led to security concerns in the capital of Kenya. We pray that these protests, over the arrest of a local MP, are not indicative of the coming days for Kenya as they return to the election process. 

 

2017-10-03 Kenya (AllAfrica) University of Nairobi has been closed indefinitely and students ordered to vacate halls of residence by Tuesday 9am.

The university Senate resolved to close the institution due to security concerns, the Director of Corporate Affairs John Orindi said.

“We will announce when the institution will re-open,” said Mr Orindi.

 

The development comes in the wake of last week’s protest by students which left 27 of them injured.

Last Thursday, the students engaged the General Service Unit riot team in running battles as they protested the arrest of Embakasi East MP Babu Owino.
