UoN LEADERSHIP POLITICS
University of Nairobi Lecturers have now given the government a three month notice beginning today to ensure current vice chancellor professor Peter Mbithi leaves the institution failure to which they will forcefully kick him out of the office.
Led by University Academic Staff Union Secretary General Union Branch George Omondi the lecturers say that Mbithi has run down UoN and that he does not deserve another five year term at the helm of the university.
They are accusing him of suspending workers without due process and compelling them to report to the institution three times a week.
They have also taken issues with how UoN conducts their statutory deductions of NHIF, NSSF, bank loans and Pension without remitting the same to the relevant institutions.
‘‘We want to ask the government to move with speed and get rid of professor Mbithi, he is mistreating workers. UoN has lost his former glory. Workers are suffering in the hands of Mbithi I mean nothing is going on at UoN.’’ He lamented.
They have also accused him of misappropriating university funds and resources.
According to them the VC has assigned himself seven official vehicles that drives him in a convoy.
Meanwhile the group is expected to meet education cabinet secretary professor George Magoha next week to front the same.
Professor Mbithi is seeking another term in office and he took over from Magoha who served for a complete term of ten years.
