Days after the University of Nairobi (UoN) council rejected Prof Peter Mbithi’s bid for automatic reappointment as VC for a second term, the University of Nairobi (UoN) council has appointed Prof Isaac Mbeche as acting vice-chancellor.
Council chair Julia Ojiambo in a communication to staff and students reassured the University of Nairobi community and all Stakeholders that the Council is in charge and there is no cause for alarm.
Prof. Mbeche was the deputy vice-chancellor in charge of finance, planning and development department prior to his new appointment. Prof Ojiambo said Prof Mbithi will go on leave on July 6 to allow for an effective appointment process of a new vice-chancellor.
