The university was shut down on 18th October after students went on two-day riot against the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system that had been introduced by the varsity management in the September-December semester.

There were damages in the university premises including the fee collection office that was set ablaze by angry students.

According to memos in the main campus and adverts in the daily newspapers on Friday, first year students and their diploma counterparts will report on November 2, fourth year students on November 3, while the third year students and second year self-sponsored (SSP) students will report on November 4.

Second year students on Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) programme will not be affected by the reopening dates since they are not in the learning session.

During the reporting days, all students are required to clear full amount of fees for the semester in addition to paying Sh1800 as fine for damages caused during the demos.

“All students will be required to sign a return to class form and classes will start immediately,” read part of the notice.

The notice signed by acting Registrar Academic Affairs, Dr. Joash Kerongo, also stated that school based students in all campuses will report on November 6 and 7.

The announcement has elicited reactions from some students, who said they were not involved in the rampage despite the fines put forth for every student.
