Misleading message on social media

The University of Nairobi has noted that there is a message trending on social media, purportedly from the Vice-Chancellor’s desk, advising second year students on opening dates.
The University wishes to state that this message is not from the University.  The position of the University is that the status quo has not changed, and second year students should wait for official communication on the opening dates which will be made through the mainstream media as has always been the practice.
