USIU students block road in demo over land sold by Moi

Students and staff of United States International University – Africa (USIU-A) on Tuesday blocked traffic on Thika Superhighway during a demonstration over a land dispute.

They blocked inbound traffic from Safari Park to the city centre in the morning demonstration to protest the sale of an eight-hectare (20-acre) parcel in up-market Muthaiga North Estate which the institution claims to own.

Dr George Kiongera, a Kenyan resident in the US, said he bought the land from former President Daniel arap Moi and does not, therefore, recognise the university’s claim.

USIU-A Vice-Chancellor Paul Tiyambe Zeleza however said the land belongs to the institution

The demonstrators were peaceful with police in riot gear following the march.
