A notice by the Eldoret-based University’s Vice-Chancellor Isaac Kosgey stated that the institution has been facing difficulties in meeting its wage bill.
“Over the years, the University wage bill has been increasing, currently taking up over 70 percent of the capitation from the exchequer,” Kosgey said.
Prof Kosgey claimed that the university revenues have been dwindling hence making it impossible for the institution to operationalize.
“The University is unable to sustain the growing wage bill and as such, it has become necessary to undertake right-sizing of the human resource to ensure the sustainability of the university and its operations,” he added.
“Towards this end, the University is considering a reduction in staffing levels that will call for compulsory redundancies.”
