Varsities to shut down

14 November 2011, 08:31

Nairobi - The Daily Nation reports that more institutions are set to shut down due to the ongoing strike by public university dons, as the strike enters day 6 on Monday.

Students at Chepkoilel University College in Eldoret were sent home indefinitely, over the weekend, as the constituent college of Moi University followed Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology in Kakamega and Egerton University in Nakuru in shutting down after lecturers and non-teaching staff downed their tools.

The move comes even as the government said it had no money to meet the lecturers’ demands.

Higher Education Minister Margaret Kamar on Sunday admitted that the lecturers had valid grievances, but that the current war in Somalia could not allow for increments on their allowances as the government had redirected its resources.
