The job of a vice chancellor is one of the most lucrative jobs in Kenya. Being in the job group E4 where one stands to earn a basic salary of between Ksh. 297,765 and Ksh 576,120 per month.

This position always attracts a lot of politics whenever there is a vacancy and sometimes the battle is always decided in the court room. Like for instance that of the University of Nairobi where professor Kiama was forced to go to court to protect his position.

But one would ask why undergo all that just for a job? But do you know how much is at stake?

The Vice chancellor of Kenyatta University prof Paul Wainaina is estimated to earn between Ksh 420,567 and 744,074 as basic salary and he is also entitled to Ksh 120,000 housing allowance and medical allowance among many other benefits. But this puts him second on the highest paid Vice Chancellors in Kenya.

The amount that the Vice chancellor earns is also determined by the kind of the University that they are heading. The older the University the higher the pay. University of Nairobi being one of the oldest in the Republic of Kenya sees its vice chancellor enjoy the highest pay as compared to other Vice chancellors in Kenya.
