University Of Nairobi Shut Down Indefinitely
The University of Nairobi has been closed indefinitely after three days of riots that saw students set ablaze the offices of the Student Organisation of Nairobi University.
A meeting of the university senate held at Utalii Hotel convened to deliberate on the violence, made a decision to shut down all the campuses of the University following the riots.
The riots were sparked by a row over the outcome of the student elections, which were again won by Babu Owino by 18,000 votes.
The students also stoned cars, robbed pedestrians and barricaded roads prompting a violet police response, which has been criticised.
The decision to shut down the university has seen students at the Lower Kabete campus to block roads.
