The National Universities Commission invaded and closed down an up coming university in Kiambu for illegality on its establishment.
The operation was carried out by Professor Henry Thairu who said the owner did not follow procedures in accordance with the University Act no 42 of 2012 on how an institution such as a university should be accredited in Kenya.
Although no one was arrested during the incident, the commission said the owner who is out of the country will be charged for misuse of the word university without permission.
The institution known as Barack Obama University was set to open 2015. He urged locals to be vigilant and not to fall prey to such institution that has not been accredited and should always check with the commission on which institution is licensed.
