University of Nairobi Students Association (UNSA) has issued an ultimatum of 10 days to the ministry of education to find a solution to a concern threatening to disrupt learning at the institution.
The institution has been under a crisis following the recent appointment by Amina Mohammed of deputy vice chancellors (DVCs) at the University of Nairobi.
The crisis began after the University Council rejected CS Amina’s appointments.
The council says that the CS ignored candidates who topped the in the interviews, only to pick those who either came number two or three.
The student leaders led by their Chairman Antony Manyara have said that no work will resume in the institution until the matter is resolved fully.
“We want to warn those who are politicizing this matter to stop with immediate effect. We also urge the council and the ministry of education to dissolve this matter urgently because it is disrupting learning in the institution,” said Antony Manyara, the University of Nairobi Students Association (UNSA) chairperson.
The new DVCs include Prof Mohamud. Jama (Finance, Planning and Development) Prof William Ogara (Human Resource and Administration), Prof Julius Ogeng’o (Academic Affairs) and Prof Lydia Njenga (Research, Production and Extension).
