If Rift lead­ers are tribal, what do we ex­pect of stu­dents?

The Star (Kenya) - - News -

I was ex­tremely baf­fled when I watched as two gov­er­nors and a group of MPs from the Rift Valley stormed Moi Univer­sity, threat­en­ing to in­ter­rupt to­day’s grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony if ‘one of their own’ is not ap­pointed vice chan­cel­lor. This is ret­ro­gres­sive, ridicu­lous and un­called for and must be con­demned. It pro­motes trib­al­ism, which lead­ers must de­sist from. If elected lead­ers are fu­elling trib­al­ism so bla­tantly, what do we ex­pect from our stu­dents when it comes to univer­sity pol­i­tics? Politi­cians must keep off man­age­ment of ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions.
