UON Students Threatens To Stage A Strike Following 7 Times Accommodation Fees Increment

The University of Nairobi Student Association office last week issued a memo stating that there will be a demonstration on Monday 20th. This is a way of protesting against the school policy to increase fees as well as accommodation fees in the premises for all students.

Students in their third and final years in single rooms will pay Sh21,525 per semester up from the previous Sh3,150 as those in rooms shared by four will pay Sh15,120, up from Sh2,730.

First-year students joining the University will pay Sh19,635 for a room shared by two students per semester from the earlier Sh2,835 that the University has been charging at its main campus. 

It would portray a bad image for a world class university to have a strike just few days before graduation which will be held on 24th this Month. Student from humble backgrounds deserves some financial relief from the university. If there will be an fees increment they should also increase HELB loan.
