Varsity Set to Expel Fee Defaulters Tomorrow, Students Thrown Into Panic

Timely fee payment by students is one of the key factors that keep Kenyan Universities running due to limited funding they receive from the government. As result, institutions of higher learning in kenya have come up with several policies to encourage early fee payment. Some schools use unit cost policies while others do not allow students with fee balances to sit for exams.

However, the management of Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology under the able leadership of newly inaugurated Vice Chancellor Solomon Shibairo has introduced new fee payment regulations that may see some unlucky students end thier studies.

Throug internal memo's send from the office of Registrar academic Affairs, the University warned students that they should pay their fees in full by tomorrow or else they be expelled (deffered for one year) from the school from tomorrow.

The strict memos stated that those who will not have paid their fees in full by tomorrow will cease to be bonafide students of the University as they shall be automatically deffered from the school for one year before being allowed to reapply again next year September.

The management warned that roll calls will be used during lessons. Only those who will pay fees will have their names on the roll calls and be allowed to sit for CATs and examinations.

Students have been thrown into panic as they thought the new VC will atleast hear their cries. The student council which was elected in early this year is said to be working with the administration, students have been left on their own. The new rules may fuel strikes as from tomorrow.
