CS George Magoha Puts Egerton University Acting Vice Chancellor on The Spot as he Praises UON

The Cabinet Secretary in the Ministry of Education George Magoha has put the acting Vice Chancellor of Egerton University Professor Issac Kibwage on the spot after the institution reported Sh4.5 billion debt.

Speaking yesterday during the 43rd graduation ceremony that was conducted virtually at the university's main Camus in Njoro, Magoha urged the institution to utilize its staff in sourcing for financial assistant through research work.

"Egerton University and others will not go anywhere until a significant part of their budget comes from research. Prof Kibwage, you must do things differently and that is why I supported you to come to Egerton University," said Magoha.

He further urged the VC to evaluate all the professors in the institution before they retire to ascertain whether they were bringing funds to the university through writing proposals or research.

Magoha further warned all institutions of Higher learning across the country to desist from depending on the government for funds when they can get funds from their skills of their staff.

He praised the University of Nairobi revealing that during his tenure as a VC, the institution used to raise at least Sh500 million per year from donor funding on proposals.
