The students who were shouting ‘Tumechoka Kunyanyaswa’ (We are tired of being mistreated) are said to have been calling for the exit of Professor Paul K. Wainaina, who is Kenyatta University Vice-Chancellor.

Among grievances raised by the students included a push of fees paying deadline to two weeks before exams, students with petty offenses to be allowed back into the institution, supplementary fees to be scraped off as well as reinstating all casual workers who lost their jobs in unclear circumstances.

In an earlier internal memo to the students,  KUSA Secretary-General had arged the students to remain calm and stay away from the planned strike since their welfare concerns were being looked into by the relevant university offices.
