Egerton University Strike
It has has been long since Egerton University Strike commenced. Lectures as well as students are highly affected. Fourth years who reported back to school when the government ordered whole finalists to resume studies are facing a difficult time since they haven't started their exams due to the ongoing strike. This strike has taken more than a month meaning the students are at school waiting for mercies.
The main reason claimed by the lectures to why they are on strike is that, on April this year the university cut their salaries by 40%.On Monday more than 100 lectures blocked the administration block at Njoro Campus singing solidarity songs. This was to block Professor Rose Awour Mwonya from accessing the office.
Professor Mwonya was reinstated as institution's Vice-chancellor by the court of Employment and Labour relation. This is after she protested to send her home before the end of of the term. Professor Kibwage was appointed by the University council on 20th November as am acting Vice-chancellor.
Lectures during the strike said more positive words to professor Kibwage some say that he is more approachable.
The court ordered the matter to be heard on 10th December. But the lectures said that they are monitoring any vehicles entering the institution so that the outgoing professor Mwonya cannot access the office.
