Kenyan university bans students from speaking in mother tongue while on campus


Students at a private Kenyan university have been barred from using their mother tongues while they are on campus.

Kenya Highlands University has issued a directive requiring its students to use only Swahili or English while on campus grounds.

The Africa Gospel Church owned university based in Kericho justified its directive saying that it will promote cohesion and eradicate infighting among the students.

While speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Vice chancellor Richard Langat said the directive is aimed at averting fears of insults and infighting among students.
