Daystar University has recalled its staff and asked them to resume duty on Friday.

Acting Vice-Chancellor James Kombo, in a memo, asked the university's staff to attend a meeting at 9.30 Friday.

"Following closure of the university earlier today (Thursday), I hereby recall all permanent and contract employees of Daystar University back to work from Friday April 13, 2018," read the memo.

"This recall excludes staff who are currently under suspension," said Prof Kombo.

The university was on earlier Thursday closed indefinitely after days of student unrest.


In a notice to students and staff, the Senate on Thursday shut the university's Nairobi and Athi River campuses and ordered all learners and workers to vacate by noon.

International students residing on Athi River campus were asked to vacate and report to a designated desk in Nairobi by 2pm.

On Wednesday night, the Nairobi Campus turned into a war zone after police stormed and lobbed teargas at protesting students following a failed meeting between their leaders and the Senate.

The two parties were scheduled to discuss an audit report on the university's financial management.
