University of Eldoret(UOE) is in turmoil after it has emerged that students from other regions in the country have been forced to vacate the institution.
A barbaric and archaic incident that has left people asking questions on the relevance of civilization in this century has occurred in the University of Eldoret- Uasin Gishu County. Students from the Kalenjin communities in collaboration with surrounding community are up in arms against students from other regions.
The actual cause of this kind of animosity has not been ascertained but word has it that this is due to the recent allegations which had been leveled against the current vice chancellor of the institution.
Mr. Isaac Melly had two days ago led a students demonstration against the Vice Chancellor claiming nepotism in terms of employment opportunities for the locals. But in quick rejoinder, yesterday one of the local/regions MP, Mr Oscah Sudi told off his counterpart. He told him to keep off matters UoE and put his self interest aside on the issue.
Magazine Reel has learnt and established that even workers from other regions of Kenya have been forced to abandon their work and vacate their premises. Tension is reported to be high with students being the latest entry group into the tussle.
Prof. Akenga is believed to be from the larger Luhya community and Isaac Melly accused her of employing only people from his community while overlooking those qualified from the local community surrounding the said institution.
Outsiders have also promised to invade University of Eldoret and eliminate people from the ” Regions they dont like “. Some of the residents believe that University of Eldoret Students from the kalenjin community are being used by politicians in advocating for the removal of the VC.
