GOVERNOR LED DEMO OVER HIRING
On September 20, Governors Jackson Mandago and Alex Tolgos led several MPs to storm Moi University. They wanted to stop appointment of Laban Ayiro as acting vice chancellor. Education CS Fred Matiang’i named Ayiro to replace Richard Mibey. Ayiro was to act for three months before the substantive VC is appointed. Mandago said they want Prof Isaac Kosgey appointed. He said they could not understand why Kosgey was “blocked” because he had highest scores among candidates.
