The University of Nairobi (UoN) has apologized to its students over the insensitive memo that was shared by the institution’s security team.
In a letter written by the Vice-Chancellor Prof Kiama addressing all students, the institution apologized for the memo that addressed robbery cases and rape of female students.
The Vice-Chancellor noted that the memo was insensitive and did not represent the corporate values and image of the institution. The letter assured all students that they would be protected as required.
I have noted that the memo was insensitive and does not represent the corporate values and image of University of Nairobi and is highly regretted.
This is therefore to assure all students of our commitment to protect and take care of them at all times.
Students are always advised to call the Directorate of Security & Safety Services whenever they are faced with security chalenges during day and nightProf Kiama, Vice-Chancellor UoN
The security team, through an internal memo, maintained that the students were the ones to blame for the tribulations they have been experiencing. They blamed the students for always getting to different joints without any company, assailants taking advantage of their loneliness.
The common “black spots” have been found to be around university way roundabout area along Nyerere Road. In all the three incidences reported last year, a clear case of recklessness on the part of our female students can be drawn
This was not taken lightly by the students who found the memo to be reckless and not addressing the security issues facing the students.
