Daystar University closed indefinitely following unrest

Daystar University has been closed indefinitely following student unrest.

In a notice to students and staff, the Senate on Thursday shut the university’s Nairobi and Athi River campuses and ordered all learners and workers to vacate by noon.

The international students residing in Athi River campus were instructed to vacate and report to a designated desk in Nairobi by 2pm.

This comes after students and staff boycotted classes at the institution demanding for the release of an audit report that would shed light on what they suspect to be mismanagement and corruption at the institution.

Speaking to KBC, Daystar student leader Karwitha Karimi says that was to be released no later than February this year but the schools administration has been reluctant to disclose its contents.

She added that so far they are demanding for transparency which has not been forthcoming even with dialogue resulting to a section of student leaders and lecturers being threatened to drop the issue.

Tension has been building up at the institution from last year where the schools Vice Chancellor Prof. Timothy Wachira was sent on a sabbatical leave to pave way for investigations into reports of mismanagement.
