The Kenya Methodist University (KeMU) has closed two of its campuses and sacked over 150 employees, it has emerged on Tuesday.

According to sources, campuses affected by the closure include those in Nyeri and Nakuru counties with affected students expected to be taken in by the Meru, Nairobi and Mombasa centres.

However, it was not immediately clear why they had been shut down as at the time this story was published.

In a termination letter sent to affected staff, the institution attributed the move to sack them to "dynamics affecting the education sector in the entire Kenyan economy".
