Students of Meru University demonstrate

21 March 2013, 14:14 Kelvin Mureithi

Students of Meru University College of science and Technology on Wednesday marched to streets of Meru Town protesting over claims of highhandedness by their dean of students.

The students walked for about 20km from the main campus located at Nchiru in Tigania West district  demanding that their dean of students Lilian Kirika resigns.

They accused the administration of failing to listen to their grievances but instead resorted to intimidation and later arrested the chairperson of the student’s union.

Addressing the students at the Meru Town Campus in quest for solidarity, the students’ secretary General John Juma said they would only resume classes once their issues have been dealt with.


He also demanded that the students be addressed by the County commissioner on the way forward for the institution which he reiterated deserved to be chartered.

Antiriot police had to use teargas to disperse the students after they barricaded the busy Meru - Nanyuki road near the county commissioner’s office causing a traffic snarl up.

Some students were seeking refuge in various parts of the Town, some oblivious of how they would get back to their campus at Nchiru.
