uon protestsThe University of Nairobi has been closed indefinitely after three days of riots that saw students set ablaze the offices of the Student Organisation of Nairobi University.

A meeting of the university senate held at Utalii Hotel convened to deliberate on the violence, made a decision to shut down all the campuses of the University following the riots.

The riots were sparked by a row over the outcome of the student elections, which were again won by Babu Owino by 18,000 votes.

The students also stoned cars, robbed pedestrians and barricaded roads prompting a violet police response, which has been criticised.

The decision to shut down the university has seen students at the Lower Kabete campus to block roads.
