BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,11TH JUNE 2018-Questionable leadership style From Daystar University council Vice Chancellor Timothy Wachira has caused him his job after the University council sacked him.
The decision follows weeks of students unrest that saw the institution closed twice.
According James Kombo who has taken over in acting capacity he will be in charge and aims to guide the entire institution back to its normal self.
Through the twitter handle , the Daystar Oracle said: “This is to inform the university community that the council has terminated the services of … Wachira. Wachira is in the process of handing over and clearing from the university.”
Wachira’s reign at the university has been dogged by controversies since last year, with mismanagement raising many accusations against him.
On December 18 last year, he was sent on a sabbatical leave and Kombo asked to take over after the university’s closure.
At that time, the institution’s senate called for investigations on issues raised by the student council and directed that the reported be handed in on February 15. Students have accused Daystar of being secretive about the contents of the report.
They also complained about poor meals, facilities and financial mismanagement, adding that tuition had increased without proper notification.
They demanded that the university council publish the contents of the audit report on financial management. Students began boycotting classes on April 5.
