Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology has been closed indefinitely on Monday.

The closure of JKUAT follows student’s unrest who are not satisfied with the security in the university.

Confirming the closure was JKUAT Deputy Vice-Chancellor Mr. Robert Kinyua who said the decision was a collective one during a meeting.

In the meantime, all students have been ordered to clear from the campus, a measure undertaken to ensure that properties are not destroyed in the process.

The students accused the police of having knowledge of the ongoing insecurity but refuse to do anything to protect them.

They further accuse the police of colluding with some of the criminals who are said to be using Boda Boda operators to commit their crimes.

Recently the crimes are said to be happening as early as 6 pm as students are threatened with knives before being robbed of their belongings.

The most recent one is that of a young female student who is reported to be in a critical condition after she was stubbed by the said thugs.

Students have accused the school management of failing to act on the complains aired to them.
