In Summary

  • Murang'a University of Technology has issued a notice to all students and staff to alert them that Kenya Wildlife Service officers will undertake an exercise to shoot monkeys.
  • Students and staff advised to avoid the university farm for two days.

Murang’a University of Technology students were on Tuesday advised to keep off the institution’s farm for the most hilarious of reasons.

Whenever you hear of a notice to university students, it is usually one to kick them out of campus after a major demonstration but at Murang’a University, it is because of monkeys.

Kenya Wildlife Service issued a statement alerting students about an exercise to, wait for it, shoot monkeys that have run riot in the farm.

“The exercise will involve firing of live bullets which may cause fear and panic but all are requested to remain calm,” reads the statement signed by the school’s Chief Security Officer F.N. Kimotho.

“All students and staff are therefore advised to avoid the university farm from 2PM to 4PM today, 13th March, 2018 and tomorrow 14th March, 2018.
