Kenya University Staff Union (KUSU) and University Academic Staff Union (UASU) have lived up to their word and proceeded with their strike. They want the Education Act to be repealed to include the vetting of Vice Chancellors and the eradication of other immediate junior and corrupt officials. The unions are also aggrieved by the reluctance in the VCs to step down and allow room for investigations on the matter. The Government has apparently failed to own up to their part of the deal thus forcing the lecturers to go on strike. The unions claim that the VCs are responsible for the occasional lecturer strikes due to their massive misappropriation of funds at the lecturers’ expense. This strike will affect students negatively with most of them approaching their end of semester exams.
Reports are in that the lecturers are disrupting classes by evicting other lecturers who tend to sneak into lecture halls and teach. KU is currently at a stand still.
