EACC has moved to court to recover 1136 acres of public land worth Kes.1.6B grabbed from Egerton University. EACC said the land is illegally owned by Kipruto Kemboi. Justice Omollo of the Nakuru Environment and Land court will hear the matter on 21st March 2023. EACC said the land initially belonged to Lord Egerton of Tatton who gifted the Egerton Agricultural College (Predecessor of Egerton University) in 1960. The property is among several parcels vested on Egerton University for it's agricultural activities and research purposes. EACC said it's finalizing on the criminal aspects of the matter with a view to recommending prosecution of any land officials who may have facilitated fraudulent acquisition of the university land. Recently, the university Vice Chancellor Professor Isaac Kibwage said the university has inadequate funds to run it's activities. He said some courses which doesn't meet the threshold to be offered will have to be dropped. He also said some staff members will be sacked due to lack of enough money to pay them.
