Early tis week, University of Nairobi was infamous after increasing its fees. As first years were reporting on Monday, they were required to pay accomodation fees increased seven times higher than the initial. This caused controversy as people complained hard economic times.
On Wednesday morning, a distressed mother was recorded crying and calling for help. Our writer learned that she took her child for admission at the institution.
We didn't establish immediately what made her cry for help but some sources say that staff in the institution were uncooperative. Former SONU Chairman and current Embakasi MP Babu Owino shared the video of the woman with a caption, "President Uhuru must intervene in this issue of fee increment at the university. University Education must never be a preserve of the rich. Education must be free. Say No to Upuzi."
Kenyans have come out in large numbers to offer various reactions. There were allegations that Prof. Kiama of the university told those who think University of Nairobi is expensive to try Kenyatta University.
