Lecturers strike to disrupt calendar, students

Student leaders at University of Nairobi say the ongoing lecturers strike will disrupt the academic calendar and delay the graduation of some students.

According to the students union Secretary General Duboris Maina, the strike has paralysed learning and caused cancellation of exams.
Those affected include students undertaking medicine and economics who were scheduled to graduate in September.

“There is another group of students who are supposed to resume from long holiday once the current lot is done with exams and all this is at a standstill,” he said on Monday.

Mr Maina wants the government to intervene and settle the pay row between lecturers and Vice Chancellors.

“We are afraid we may be compelled to read from the streets though this may not be our preferred course. We are not willing to spend another week without learning,” said Mr Maina.

The strike entered its fourth day on Monday.
