Drama was witnessed yesterday night after University of Eldoret went on rampage. The strike took place in the nearby school market known as Sogomo. Car tyres were put a blaze blocking the main road to the university main gate and to Kabarnet. It is alleged that students didn't get into the school premises despite bringing down Gate C.
Main issue that led to this night strike is due to rescheduling of the exam timetable. The students were expected to sit for their end semester examination as from 12th April 2021 but instead, the school administration has decided to put exams on date 6th telling students to pay fee before Wednesday.
In the memo that was released on Monday, the administration threatened the students by telling them that whoever will not manage to pay fee by 1st of April will not be given exam card hence will be required to defer.
University vice Chancellor Professor Akenga is expected to address the students today inorder to listen to their grievances. The school is also expected to be closed until further notice. Here the video https://www.facebook.com/100023320899556/posts/915126842608004/?app=fbl
