Magoha Put Egerton University On The Spot For This Mess

The cabinet Secretary for Education Professor George Magoha has put Egerton University on the spot due to a financial mess in the university.

Speaking yesterday in the 43rd virtual graduation ceremony, Magoha challenged the acting vice chancellor of Egerton University, Professor Isaac Kibwage, to do things differently to make sure a significant part of their budget comes from research. He said the University will not go anywhere until this is met. He urged Prof Kibwage to utilize his skills to raise funds to save Egerton university from its current financial mess. This comes after the institution is reportedly having a sh.4.5 billion debt.

"Professor Kibwage you must do things differently and that's why i supported you to come to Egerton University." The cabinet secretary said.

He urged professor Kibwage to start evaluating professors as they approach retirement to establish whether they are bringing money to the university.

Covid-19 has adversely affected the Education sector in the country hence the prime reason why most university institutions are opting for virtual graduation ceremonies to contain the spread of the deadly virus.
