According to the Star News, Hon Babu Owino has stated that he will lead these demonstrations after the government has hinted at withdrawing financial support for all public universities in the country. According to Babu Owino, the government's decision will affect all university students in Kenya, as each university will now begin raising school fees. His statement, however, comes at a time when Hon Ezekiel Machogu has stated that the government will not stop funding public universities. "According to a former University of Nairobi student leader, the fee increase is a felony. He warned that the move would galvanize university students across the country, leading them to the State House and every state lodge. He stated that it was past time for the Kenya Kwanza government to put their manifesto into action." According to the reports.
