Some of the suspended students who spoke to The Standard on condition of anonymity said they had been trying to engage the university administration in order to resolve the matter, but their efforts had proved futile. Their worry is that they might be locked out of campus and miss their January examinations. The indefinite suspension, they claim, has shocked them. They said they are now contemplating seeking legal action against the university management. “We tried to have the matter resolved but the management declined to hear us. We fear that we might not sit for our examinations come January,” said one of the suspended students. Protested charges Over 13,700 students of Egerton University’s main campus in Njoro were charged Sh16,862 each following the strike. The charges have caused an uproar among the students and parents who want the university to provide a breakdown of how the money will be used. According to an advert that made rounds on social media, students living with disability are exempted from paying the fine.
