Moi University closed indefinitely after staff strike.

Moi University’s main campus in Kesses, Uasin Gishu county has been closed indefinitely following the staff strike which started on Monday.

In a memo issued and signed by the Deputy Vice-chancellor in charge of Academics, Research, and Extension, Prof Isaac Kimengi, the University indicated it would suspend activities in the institution until further notice.

“At it’s special meeting held on Wednesday, October 27, the senate resolved to suspend teaching and learning activities at the main campus indefinitely due to industrial action by the university staff which has affected university Operations,” read part of the memo.

Lectures and other workers at the university downed their tools on Monday and have been on strike since then.

They accused the institution of failing to pay their salaries on time and being unable to full fill the 2017 to 2021 collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).

They claimed that the university had failed to supervisors and and external examiners, paralysing the post-graduate programmes in the institution. They claimed that the university lacked basic resources like pens and printing papers, making it difficult for the lecturers to teach.
