Moi University closed as lecturers strike continues

20 March 2014, 00:47 William Korir

Nairobi - Moi University has been closed indefinitely as a result of the ongoing national lecturers strike.

The university through a statement to media houses said that the strike, which has seen lecturers all over the country down their tools had caused a lull in operations and needed to be addressed first before the university resumes.

The university senate had called a meeting Wednesday to decide whether there was any reason why the university should stay open with no learning going on.

And thus the decision was taken, with students sent home until the strike is resolved.

" The university has decided to close indefinitely until the current situation with striking lecturers is resolved to allow operations return to normal, the statement said.

The move will likely accelerate the ongoing negotiations between the government and university staff unions which have yet to come to a solution.

The strike is now in its third week over salaries and allowances to the tune of KES 3.7 Billion that lecturers are claiming the government owes them.
