Technical University of Mombasa closed indefinitely following students’ riots

19 October 2015, 13:05 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi – The Technical Universtiy of Mombasa (TUK) has been shut indefinitely following Monday morning students’ riot over fee increment.

TUK’s Vice Chancellor, Josephat Mwatela in statement confirming the closure of institution’s main campus, said their subsidiary colleges including those in Kwale and Lamu among others are not affected.

Mwatela said the decision to shut the campus was reached following urgent meeting with the institution’s Senate where students were ordered to pack their belongings and leave immediately for home after refusing to be addressed by the varsity’s management.

The protesting students claimed that the varsity management did not inform them in advance on raised fees.

Although anti-riot police were deployed to combat the situation, the unruly students set ablaze two Mombasa County government garbage collection trucks and destroyed property of unestablished amount around the campus.

The students also paralyzed transport after blocking nearby roads that caused huge traffic jam.

However, the university management did not specify when students should return to carry on with their studies.
