The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

A let­ter ap­point­ing for­mer KU vice chan­cel­lor Olive Mu­genda as the CEO of the in­sti­tu­tion’s hos­pi­tal has been with­drawn, the High Court has been told.

Mu­genda was of­fered the po­si­tion in March 2016, al­legedly at a salary sim­i­lar to what she earned as VC.

Ac­tivist Okiya Om­tatah filed a suit at the Em­ploy­ment and Labour Re­la­tions Court chal­leng­ing her ap­point­ment.

The court heard yes­ter­day that the par­ties en­tered into a con­sent agree­ing to can­cel her ap­point­ment. They in­clude Ed­u­ca­tion CS Fred Ma­tiang’i, the Univer­sity Coun­cil, State Cor­po­ra­tion Ad­vi­sory Com­mit­tee, the At­tor­ney Gen­eral and the Uni­ver­si­ties Aca­demic Staff Union.

The par­ties also agreed to im­me­di­ately stop the uni­lat­eral in­cor­po­ra­tion and regis­tra­tion of Keny­atta Univer­sity Teach­ing Re­search and Re­fer­ral Hos­pi­tal.

“The hos­pi­tal and all its in­tended af­fil­i­ate fa­cil­i­ties, in­clud­ing the planned chil­dren’s and women’s re­fer­ral hos­pi­tal, are pub­lic as­sets owned by the in­sti­tu­tion and shall be man­aged ac­cord­ing to the Con­sti­tu­tion, the Uni­ver­si­ties Act, 2012, the KU char­ter and the in­sti­tu­tion’s statutes,” the con­sent states.
