Kenyan universities delay class due to post-election violence

January 7, 2008

Kenyan universities have postponed classes to prevent students and academic staff from getting caught in the violence caused by last month's presidential elections.  The ministry of education has approved requests from several schools to delay the term.  More than 300 individuals have been killed in the violence so far.  All universities are to wait until January 14th to open, unless given special permission from the ministry.
