Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology (MMUST) through the University Academic Staff Union (UASU) has written to the acting president of the Judicial Service Commission lamenting how external forces have been using Labour and Employment Court Justice Stephen Radido to frustrate the University's growth efforts.
The University raised concerns on why Justice Radido should be the one presiding over every case concerning the institution. Radido has handled MMUST cases that ended up destroying the University's governance and management structures back in 2018. The University decried that on 7th April, the same Radido again suspended the university's governance and management structures. The biggest concern is that those who file the cases outsiders who have no stake in the academic section.
As a result of the ruling, the University's much awaited promotion interviews for staff have again been halted for the 4th time in a row.
The University has also been working around the clock despite corona disruption to ensure that Students clear their course work and graduate in June, but as a result of the ruling, students might be dealt ablow as there's no legal council to oversee the process. The University has not had permanent office holders since 2018 as a result of Radido's rulings.
The University has asked Lady Justice Mwilu to urgently intervene and form a Committee to investigate continued frustration of the Institution by Radido.
The founders of the university ( WECOFA) have also released a statement condemning outsiders led by Mr. Bosire, Lukoye for using the Judiciary for self gains. The body has called for massive demonstrations by students, villages and political leaders on Monday to save the University from collapsing.
