Uasin Gishu County Senator Isaac Melly
wants University of Eldoret Vice Chancellor Prof Teresiah Akenga removed to pave way for a new appointment conducted by the county leadership citing that Prof Akenga is an outsider.
But the universities admininstration has hit back terming
Melly’s statement part of a
political scheme to ‘discredit’
the VC. He called it “an evil
political scheme” hatched to discriminate her due to her tribal alignment.
They accused Melly of carrying out a
a tribal campaign against her and
called the Senators’s
remarks “embarrassing” and
“Such a statement is not only
embarrassing to come from the
person of the Senators’s stature, but
is also meant to play to the
public gallery to achieve a
tribal political agenda,” said
“We refuse to have her victimised and
cowed by such Machiavellian
political antics,”said the students leadership.
But Melly says Prof Teresia’s departure is necessary for a local to take her place.
