University of Kibianga students have been ordered to resume learning beginning September 20 after closure following student unrest.

The students will resume in three phases from September 20 to September 26 depending on the year of admission.

"The 2017/2018 group will resume to finish the semester and begin examination on September 20, 2020/2021 and 2019/2020 groups will report on September 22 and September 26 respectively to begin a new semester, " the university said.

Students at the Kericho-based institution went on rampage on September 13 after the school’s administration announced that it had increased fees by Ksh10,000.

The demonstration over the aforementioned fee increment was staged by second, third and fourth- year students.

The University’s senate council, after a meeting, announced a decision to kick out all the students from the precincts of the institution up to a further date.

The abrupt ruling was communicated to the students and staff through an internal memo undersigned by the Deputy vice Chancellor in charge of Academic Affairs, Elijah Omwenga.

“All the students are requested to vacate the premises immediately,” the memo read in part.
