Kyambogo University Council has sent the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Isaiah Omolo Ndiege on forced leave to pave way for investigations into the alleged mismanagement and abuse of office, as the institution is set reopen tomorrow (Monday).
Prof. John Opuda-Asibo, Deputy Vice Chancellor in charge of Academic Affairs has taken over as acting vice with an ad hoc committee given six weeks from last Wednesday to give a detailed report over all the allegations, according to the chairman of the University Council Prof. John Okedi.
"Council in a meeting today (Saturday) ruled that Ndiege takes his accumulated 50 days leave and the institution opens," Okedi explained. The leave has been accumulated in the last two years.
"We have said that teaching will effectively start on Tuesday morning. But students can report to campus Sunday morning. Staff will report to work on the same day. Note that council has done in with full consultations with all the stake holders."
The University was closed August 30 following a sit down strike of academic staff, senior administrative staff and support staff that started August 23, due to unfulfilled demand that Ndiege should step aside to enable investigations into mismanagement of office.
