Moi University students excluded from Thursday 22 August, 2019 graduation that is currently underway at the university’s main campus in Eldoret on Wednesday evening won ‘big time’ against the university after a Mombasa court ruled in their favour.
The Mombasa court giving a ruling on on Wednesday evening described the act of excluding the more than 700 students from the graduation list as discriminatory and an act rights infringement.
The court further ruled that each of the petitioners be awarded Sh50,000 as costs while ordering that the respondent (Moi University) include all the excluded students in the graduation list on December at zero option.
Fikirini Jacobs, the Chairperson of the Kenya Union of University Organizations (KUSO) commenting after the ruling said it was a win for all comrades.
“A win for all comrades indeed. This has set precedence for all university Senate that do similar injustice for comrades in future,” Fikirini said.
