public universities are facing financial crisis,  a factor that is now hindering their day to day operations.

This is  according to  Kenya Universities Staff Union secretary general Charles Mukhwaya who says  lecturers and the supporting staffs  are not  receiving their monthly salaries in time.

‘‘we want to confirm that our universities are facing a cash crunch and as we speak the government reduced the universities budget by  half  and things are not well,they   can not remit even statutory deductions like NHIF,NSSF and pensions,’’ He said.

He further faulted  some universities for misappropriating funds saying that is also a major factor  contributing financial crisis.

‘‘I cant rule out corruption in our institution and its true that we  face it and we want the relevant agencies to also come in and unravel the same.’’ Mukhwaya stated.

Mukhwaya has also applauded the  appointment of  professor George Magoha as the new  cabinet secretary for education saying that its  timely  and that Magoha should focus on ending perennial strikes in the education sector.

‘‘Magoha should have a meeting with Salaries an numeration commission immediately with other stakeholders so that we can address this issue of  dons and teachers salaries.’’ He added.
