Here’s why Moi University Students are threatening to go on Strike

Moi University students taking degree and diploma courses in Hospitality Management, Tourism Management and Tours and Travel have threatened to boycott classes next semester if the institution does not find them permanent lecture halls.

The over 1,000 students who have been taking their lectures under tents have bemoaned the poor treatment that the university has been subjecting them to yet they pay their fees just like any other student at the institution.

The students were forced to take their classes under tents at the Annex Campus after the university closed down its Kips Plaza Campus in Eldoret town that was housing the students taking degree and diploma programs in Hospitality Management, Tourism Management and Tours and Travel due to high costs incurred in rent payment.

The new group that has been using the tents has earned the nickname “IDPs” due to the makeshift facilities they are using.
Other students who have been affected include those in the School of Agriculture and Natural Resources that were moved to the Kitale Campus and those from the School of Business and Economics was moved to Eldoret West Campus from the main campus.
This was, according to the university’s management, aimed at consolidating the university resources and boost the quality of education at the institution.
If the students make good of their threat, then learning at the Eldoret-based institution will be paralyzed once the institution reopens for the next semester.
