Africa Nazarene University has suspended on-campus classes following the coronavirus scare.
Vice Chancellor Stanley Bhebhe has said the first coronavirus reported in Kenya on Friday has been traced to Ongata Rongai, where the university is located.
“After careful consideration, the university has taken a cautionary decision to suspend on-campus classes effective Monday 16, 2020,” Bhebhe said in a statement.
The order applies to the main and Nairobi campuses. Students living in the university hostels in Ongata Rongai have also been advised to move by Monday.
