A twitter hash tag #masaibucampus concerning Kenyan universities has been trending for days now. The hash tag that was started a week ago has seen comrades express the hell of a time they go through during their days in campus up to their point of graduation. Through this hash tag, comrades have expressed their disappointment in the systems of management in different universities and how some of the university administrations mishandle them in their time of need for service.
We sampled some of the tweets from this hash tag and this is what comrades are saying about their hardships in universities;
Some universities if you fail 3 units at a particular year, you aren’t allowed to proceed. You wait till they are offered, then do resit exams after that you will proceed. We need such strict universities. Thumbs up @MurangaUni #MasaibuCampus
“Multimedia University Student leaders collude with Hostel Managers to sell rooms to students who are desperate to find accommodation.” #MasaibuCampus
Manze in Uon you can stay for 5 years in campus despite the fact that you’re partaking a 4 year course
In Kenyatta University you have to finish paying school fees 100% in order to register your units online. Unit registration and payment of school fees got deadlines. #MasaibuCampus
Am MKU students since 2012,i have never graduated due to missing marks, I have re-seat the same exams 3 timesAnd still not successful #MasaibuCampus
There is NO greater SCAM in the Universities like that revolving around the RENEWAL of Students ID cards. How does a Plastic ID expire again? If we don’t renew our National IDs,What are Students’ IDs? It beats logic to pay ksh 500+ every academic year for a New Id #MasaibuCampus
Engineering students at Dedan Kimathi University were not able to do any projects during their time of study and they were not provided avenues for them to be assessed as is required of any engineering student in Kenya #MasaibuCampus
Campus is that place you will have many friends when you got money and remain alone in your house when broke njaa ikikufinya. Unaanza kuomba mzazi pesa ya kutengeneza portal if u know u know. #MasaibuCampus
From the above responses from comrades from different campuses, you can judge what people are going through during their days in campus.
