Chuka University Expelled Students

Chuka University Expelled Students, A masters student and three fourth years are among 40 learners who have been expelled from Chuka University for allegedly orchestrating riots at the institution in February 2016.

Vice Chancellor Erastus Njoka gave the students 30 days to appeal the decision following the strike he said left property destroyed.

“We carried out thorough investigations before arriving at the decision,” said Prof Njoka.

Each student will be required to pay Sh1,900 for the damaged property.

A Bachelor of Psychology First Year student, Collins Obaya, confirmed to the Nation that he had received his expulsion letter.

“I don’t think I will appeal because I don’t even know where to start,” said Mr Obaya.

He accused the administration of allegedly expelling students based on tribe.

First and fourth year students reported back on Thursday last week while the others are to resume on May 26.

The students went on the rampage on February 18, 2016, protesting against the swearing in of the newly elected student council on claims of unfairness.

They argued that the election was flawed.

According to information that was provided in court by the university, property worth Sh11 million was damaged.

A case involving 17 students who were arraigned in Chuka Law Courts in connection to the riot will be heard on May 23, 2016.
