All exams scheduled to take place at Kenyatta University have been pushed to a later date as the institution plays host to visiting Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni on Friday, March 29.
Yoweri who is in Kenya for a three-day state visit which began on Wednesday, March 27, is expected to hold a public lecture on integration in Africa.
In view of this, activist Boniface Mwangi has called on students to disrupt Museveni’s function to express their disgust towards the president’s dictatorial leadership.
“A dictator who has ruled Uganda for 33 years Museveni will give a lecture at Kenyatta University. Exams have been canceled at Kenyatta University to allow a murderous dictator a platform. I hope comrades will give him trouble. Disrupt! Free Stella Nyanzi!,” he posted.
Whereas the 74-year-old leader is credited for stabilising the once wobbly East African nation after series of multiple coups, his style of leadership has been brought into sharp focus.
Arbitrary arrests and detentions have characterised his 33-year long presidency with Makarere University Stella Nyanzi remains locked up since November over anti-Museveni Facebook posts.
