Kenyatta University (KU) in Kenya has recently been in the news due to the controversial allocation of land to the World Health Organization (WHO) by former President Uhuru Kenyatta. However, President William Ruto's government has reversed this decision, with Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua announcing on Friday that the prime KU land given to the WHO has been reinstated. Gachagua explained that the university's Vice Chancellor (VC) had been pressured to give up part of the institution's land, but had resisted these demands.
Gachagua also warned that if Ruto had not been elected president, the university's land might have been taken after the VC was removed from office. The Ministry of Land has been instructed to cancel the land transaction and return the land to KU, with the exception of 38 acres that will be given to squatters in Kamai in accordance with the law.
