According to Kenya Universities Student Organization’s President James Wamban, KUSO is seeking to represent and litigate in the Court of Law on cases of unfair and unjust suspensions. The organization is also seeking file the cases of unjust expulsions of students from various Universities.
The President said that there are a number of students who have been suspended from their University on false charges. Wamban asked all students who have such cases to contact him .
In one of the cases that have been sent to Wamban, Karatina University Chairperson Kipkorir Victor Kirui was suspended from the varsity following the aftermath of the strike that occured on 2nd December, 2020. Kipkorir wrote a letter to the Vice Chancellor Prof. Muchai Muchiri to allow him present his second hearing to the Senate. The senate suspended Kipkorir from the varsity for three academic years. According to the letter, the vadict was made on 22nd of January 2021.
The Chairperson wanted to appeal to the decision claiming that his evidence presented to the Senate was worth and exceeded the threshold of him being punished.
“The evidence induced while on the hearing of 19th of this month, did not meet the threshold to hold me culpable over the strike. Legally, every administrative action, as in the Fair Administrative Act, should be built on the principles of natural justice and it is my humble request that you give me a second opportunity to defend myself,” Part of the letter read.
Kipkorir further attached a 10-paged evidence in words on the letter written to the VC.
