Mount Kenya University (MKU) Thika Campus has been closed indefinitely following student unrest.
The students engaged police officers in running battles Monday morning claiming students from some communities are being discriminated from participating in social interactions. The learners also cited slow internet within the institution and missing marks as part of the reasons why they staged a demonstration.
“Following consultation and assessment of the current situation, the University Senate has resolved to suspend learning and operations indefinitely,” the university vice-chancellor Prof Stanley Waudo said in a statement.
All students were ordered to vacate the university premises before noon.
