This is after the management ordered all students to pay a total of Sh16,862 to clear damages caused by demonstrations witnessed in the university in early December.

” All undergraduate students who were in Njoro Main campus for the 1st semester of the 2019/2020 academic year MUST pay a surcharge of Kes 16, 862 towards repair, replacement and restoration of damaged property at the university.” the notice read in part.

Through the hashtag #EgertonCartels, the students expressed their frustrations and disbelief toward the decision.
