Meru University students protest against Vice Chancellor’s removal


Meru University of Science and Technology students caused transport disruption on Monday, March 6, when they protested against the removal of the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Romanus Odhiambo.

The university council cited underperformance as the reason for sending him on terminal leave.

Videos showed students clashing with police, and a car was torched.

Although Prof. Odhiambo had requested to renew his contract, the council rejected it and ordered him to take terminal leave while they find a replacement.

The removal of the Vice Chancellor has raised questions about whether it was politically motivated or not.
