The student protests led to damages of the school property and every undergraduate student will pay Ksh 500 to cater for the damages.
The students were protesting over early deadline for fees payment, suspension of fellow students and student leaders over what they termed as ‘petty basis’ and the administration charging Ksh 2500 for the Supplementary examination.
The students engaged the police officers in running battles along the Thika Road and caused a huge traffic jam.
The students were led by their student union leader Joshua Ayika.
