Moi University staff and locals have taken to the streets protesting the prolonged appointment of a new Vice Chancellor. The staff has threatened to avert the upcoming graduation ceremony if a new vice chancellor is not appointed by September 22, 2016.

 

Reports indicate that DVC Prof. Nathan Ogechi is likely to be appointed in acting capacity as Vice Chancellor a move that has angered the locals and staff

 

The staff and locals are accusing the Education Cabinet secretary (CS) Dr. Fred Matiangi of his intention to impose to a Vice Chancellor of his choice. This comes shortly after Baringo senator Gideon Moi indicated that they are going to defend their own people in job appointments. A statement that has largely been misinterpreted by the locals to mean that the Vice Chancellor must come from within the local community.

UPDATE: Shortly after posting this article CS Matiangi announced the appointment of  Prof Laban Ayiro as acting Moi University vice chancellor
