Kenya Methodist University (KeMU) has sent its vice-chancellor Henry Kiriamiti on compulsory leave citing “non-performance”. The move creates a new management crisis that has dogged the institution over the years.

In a letter dated July 17 to Prof Kiriamiti by the university council chairman, Charles Mbui, the VC is required to take all pending annual leave days with immediate effect and hand over to Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academic Affairs) Prof Maurice Okoth.

“Following the Special Council meeting of July 17, the Council noted your responses of July 13, 2017 on non-performance issues raised to you vide the Chairman of the Council’s letter dated July 7, 2017 and further resolved that you take all your pending annual leave days with immediate effect as you await further communication from the council,” the letter states.
