BY ANN MUNENE,NAIROBI,19TH JAN 2020-Leadership tussle at the University of Nairobi student  continues with students leaders  now calling upon  the government to expedite the process of picking a new Vice Chancellor.

Speaking to the press on Sunday morning, officials of the University of Nairobi Students’ Association (UNSA) maintained that they support the action taken by the CS, further expressing their support for Prof. Mbeche.

“Earlier there had been claims that there was mischief in the process of Vice Chancellor appointment…we want to say that this time round that matter be investigated as called upon by the Education CS,” said Byron Ochieng, main campus Secretary General.

This comes after Education Cabinet Secretary Prof. George Magoha revoked the appointment of Prof. Stephen Kiama and named Prof. Isaac Mbeche the acting VC.

UNSA Vice President Nyakundi Ian, on his part, said; “We cannot be having three Vice Chancellors in a year…that is a joke.”

It will be remembered that the the UoN Council early this year announced Prof. Stephen Gitahi Kiama as the institution’s new Vice Chancellor for a five-year term.
