One feared dead as JKUAT closed indefinitely after night of unrest

01 November 2014, 16:31 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology JKUAT in Juja has been closed indefinitely following student unrest.

It is feared that one person has died in the riots that started Friday evening and went on for the duration of the night at the University premises.

Heavily armed GSU officers as well as police were brought in to quell the situation and following talks by the university board, it was decided that the institution be closed indefinitely.

Students who spoke to News24 decried the use of excessive force from police, with images of spent live bullets also strewn across social media platforms.

A car was burnt in the melee, with property estimated to be worth millions of shillings damaged.

The students were protesting increased cost of living in the institution, saying they are being forced to pay more for substandard facilities and services.

It is also understood that the students were not happy with a decision to force them pay school fees in lump-some instead of installments.

Student union leaders had tried hard to negotiate with Vice Chancellor Prof. Mabel Imbuga over the changes but to no avail, thus the strike and decision to close the university.

More to come..
