Paul Wainaina: KU VC Resigns Days After Warning from Uhuru


Kenyatta University Vice Chancellor Paul Wainaina has resigned.

According to reports, he revealed his decision to resign as the university’s VC in a morning meeting with staff on Tuesday, July 12.

Reports also indicated that the University council has since been dissolved and a new team set to take over the institution.


“This is probably the last time you’ll see me addressing you as VC,” Wainaina reportedly said during the staff meeting.

Wainaina’s exit has been linked to his refusal to surrender the university’s tittle deed of a 1,000-acre piece of land to facilitate a World Health Organization project.

WHO was set to build a KSh 600 million emergency center on the university’s land for it’s regional operations.

Also, the resignation comes days after President Uhuru Kenyatta issues a warning over the same, noting that some people do not reason with the nation in mind.

The Head of State threatened to send home such individuals before his time in office comes to an end.

“We have individuals who are very ignorant and behave as if they have never entered a classroom… they don’t understand that Kenya has never operated in isolation. We shall deal with those individuals swiftly and very effectively,” he said.
