The Universities Academic Staff Union (UASU) at The  Eldoret University, Thursday joined Kenya University Staff Union (KUSU) in a peaceful demonstration demanding former Vice chancellor Prof  Teresa Akenga to vacate office  and  allow for the assumption of office by the New Acting Vice  chancellor.

Led by Dr. Nyaberi Mogaka the Joint chair of UASU and KUSU Eldoret University chapter, the leaders have castigated the former Vice Chancellor for holding on to office despite the lapse of her leadership tenure at the Institution.

“We want  to ask the  former  vice  chancellor  to vacate office with immediate  effect and allow the new acting  vice  chancellor to provide leadership into the  institution without  undue influence, We ask the  Chancellor and  the Council Chair to intervene with the  urgency that this matter deserves “Said Dr. Mogaka.

We would not wish to witness a situation where leaders overstay in office until they are  forced out by the people,  we will not allow “mugabeism” to take place in this noble Institution. He added

KUSU Branch Secretary Robinson Kibet has urged the former Vice Chancellor to handover three of  the  University Vehicles she is currently  using against the law as  she has since  ceased  being the holder of  the position of the  Vice chancellor in the  Institution.
