Kenyan University students have always been radical and resolve to riots and chaotic demonstrations whenever their institutions fail to listen to their grievances. Usually, these demonstrations organized by student leaders lead to the destruction of property attracting heavy penalties and fines to innocent students. Photo: Courtesy
Students of Kisii University have been reported to have gone on a rampant strike over the university's unanimous decision to increase school fees. According to reports from various media houses, second-year students in the university were very upset after this move by the school and decided to air their grievances by organizing a peaceful demonstration which turned chaotic. Students were extremely pissed off and went ahead to vandalize property and ended up blocking the main gate by pilling furniture. The administration took a quick step to salvage the situation and contacted the police who arrived at the university premises to scatter the rioting crowd.
The university senate has then taken a further precautionary measure and suspended a section of students especially second-year students who reportedly masterminded the demonstrations. However, other students in the school are set to continue with normal learning and they will not be affected by the suspension.
Many Kenyans have aired their dissatisfaction with the methods used by students to articulate the issues and problems to the relevant authorities. All students should be disciplined and use proper channels to solve these issues with the administration to avoid penalties that may be too expensive to pay later on.
