Time to take stock of 60 var­si­ties’ quan­tity, quality

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta last week or­dered that no new uni­ver­si­ties will be es­tab­lished or char­tered for the time be­ing. This was after award­ing char­ters to eight new uni­ver­si­ties at a cer­e­mony at State House. With over 60 uni­ver­si­ties in the coun­try that in­clude pub­lic, pri­vate, con­stituent col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties with let­ters of in­terim au­thor­ity, it is only fair we first take stock of whether the uni­ver­si­ties are of­fer­ing quan­tity or quality. I there­fore sup­port Uhuru’s move to freeze any fur­ther set­ting up of new uni­ver­si­ties un­til we take stock of what we al­ready have.
