Expelled Mike Jacobs takes University of Nairobi to court

By Faith Karanja | May 11th 2016 | 1 min read

Nairobi, Kenya: Eight University of Nairobi (UoN) students have moved to court to challenge their expulsion following last month's strike.

They have filed an urgent suit contesting the decision by the university to dismiss them.

The students, led by Mike Jacobs Odhiambo, claimed that the decision to expel five of them and suspend the rest was made hurriedly without following due process.

The applicants said they were ambushed with a myriad of accusations and were denied an opportunity to defend themselves.

They are also seeking to restrain the university from preferring criminal charges against them as threatened in their letters of suspension. Judge Weldon Korir certified the matter as urgent.

Meanwhile, Kitui Rural MP Charles Nyamai was yesterday charged with fraud.
