Comparison Made Between Moi University VC Interviews And JSC Selection Of Chief Justice

Moi University has been brought into the latest feud between CJ nominee Martha Koome and LSK President Nelson Havi. The fight which is threatening to escalate into a lawsuit, came about when Havi demanded to know the scores of all members who attended JSC panel to be considered for the position of Chief Justice.

Nelson Havi said that the process was not transparent and the ultimate nominee was not the most qualified candidate. This comes at a time when Fred Ngatia says that he was the most qualified candidate and that some panelists allegedly changed his marks.

Now Moi University has been thrown into the limelight again because of this. In 2017, the institution was heavily castigated for being tribal and practicing nepotism in its appointment of vice chancellor. Prof Laban Ayiro was widely considered to be the most qualified shortlisted candidate. This was also supported by the results of the interview as most panelists gave him top marks.

He was usurped by Prof Isaac Kosgei after three panelists gave him dismal grades. This led to a public outcry that Prof Laban had been intentionally sabotaged on tribal basis. Could JSC be avoiding a repeat of what happened in Moi University?
