Drama unfolded today at Kisii University’s Migori branch as the college was declared out of bounds for both learners and management by the decision to close the branch indefinitely

The students who had turned up for their academic sessions were astonished to find the campus entrance locked with two security officers

The Kisii University Migori campus at Zaodon plaza within Migori town has effectively been closed by the government.

The campus is among Kitale and Kabarnet campuses closed by the Commission for University Education for below-par standards in a letter written on Wednesday.

“This is to inform you that during the 111th University management board meeting on February 21, 2018, the university board approved the closure of [these] campuses by May 1, 2018,” the letter read.

The letter was signed by university Vice-Chancellor John Akama with instructions that all property belonging to the university should be removed from the campuses by May 31 to avoid extra costs.

The campuses have been marred by claims of non-payment of lecturers, lack of teaching and learning materials.


Some of the students who spoke to the press said that stand- off has lasted more than 6 days with and they have now run out of patience. 


Phillip Kisiagro, said that as students they owe the university no fee arrears and they find no reason as to why the university fails to clear up rent arrears. 

The college’s principal Dr. Mongare Omare could not be reached for comments over the same .

Last year 28 lecturers in the campus had signed a petition to demand payment of their arrears an issue they said are affecting the campus performance and viability

Led by their Secretary General Jude Mroso, the lecturers alleged that they had tried to contact the institutions’ top management to sort out their payments in vain.

The move comes merely day after the ministry of Education through Cs Fred Mkhoha announce plans to merge public universities
