KCA University has denied claims that it suspended a student for meeting with University of Nairobi student leader Babu Owino.

A suspension letter allegedly sent by the university to one John Nyangaresi went viral on social media on Monday.


KCA said in a statement on Tuesday that the “malicious fake letter” was aimed at disgracing it.

“The student does not exist in out records, neither has such a person applied for registration in our university,” Communications manager Felgona Ochieng said.

“The admission number (BSI/12541/2012) does not belong to the university nor follow the format of the university admission series.”

Otieno added that suspensions are handled by the university registrar and that all communication from the VC’s office bears his name.

The alleged suspension letter, signed by an unnamed VC, claimed that Nyangaresi met Owino at Thika Road Mall on February 11.

“My office has clearly established that you are planning to incite students at KCA University and cause havoc resulting to an indefinite closure of the university,” it said.

It termed Owino “a well known enemy of KCA university administration” and warned that further meetings with him would result in an expulsion.

It further accused him of threatening to buy the unnamed VC’s car after a student was suspended last year.
