The Masinde Muliro University Senate has suspended a student by the name Mong'are for taking and distributing photos of university students sleeping outside in the Cold while on an industrial trip to Mombasa.
The students were final years from the school of Agriculture and Vetinary Technology on an industrial trip to explore marine science and technology in Mombasa coastline.
Mong'are was found guilty of distributing the photos to all social media platforms at the expense of the University's reputation or public Image. The senate judge sheet indictated that it is illegal for students to distribute information concerning the University to the media without permission.
The students slept outside in a police station compound in Changamwe Mombasa after their bus was found travelling beyond curfew hours at 11:00PM. University rules prohibits sleeping in a school bus, this forced comrades to sleep outside under arrest together with their lead lecturers. A fine of Ksh 10,000 was paid before they were released in the morning.
It's unfair for the university to suspend Mong'are for such a petty issue, a warning letter would have worked.perhaps, absence of an active student council union has led to such unfair disciplinary measures in Kenyan universities.
