Nairobi - Eight university campuses face closure over lack of accreditation.
The Commission for University Education said Thursday in a statement that the eight campuses would be closed for failing to adhere to the higher education act and will be closed within six months if they fail to make their case.
The eight include the Westlands campus of the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology JKUAT and the Narobi City Centre branch of Multimedia University of Science and Technology MMU.
City campuses of Limuru's St Paul’s University, Egerton University, Africa Nazarene University, South Eastern Kenya University, Dedan Kimathi University and Kakamega based Masinde Muliro University have also been cautioned.
"The decision comes after serious consideration and evaluation in line with regulating the establishment of campuses", the Commision said in its statement.
When contacted, the dean in-charge of Nazarene's Nairobi campus said that there would be no comment in the meantime as the University administration is dealing with the matter.
