Kenyan University Suspends 3 Staff Over Botched Security DrillEric Ombok
The three will stay away from work pending investigations into the Dec. 1 security drill that caused panic, the university said in a statement in the Daily Nation newspaper.
The institution also “terminated the services of the security director with immediate effect” and disbanded its security committee.
The exercise was conducted following a series of terror attacks in the East African nation. At least 147 people died in April when Islamist-militant gunmen attacked Garissa University in northeastern Kenya. The same month, a student died in a stampede at the University of Nairobi when an exploding electricity transformer was mistaken for gunfire.
