Moi VC stalemate linked to cartels eyeing KES 17 billion laptops tender

03 October 2016, 12:05 Jackson Okata

Eldoret - Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter has linked the Moi University Vice Chancellor appointment standoff to a Kshs 17 billion laptop tender.

Addressing residents in Eldoret town on Friday, Keter said cartels are behind the appointment stalemate that has rocked the institution because of the multi-billion tender.

“There is a cartel which is trying to influence the appointment of the Vice Chancellor and put in their own so they can siphon money through the laptop tender,” said Keter.

The legislator called on President Uhuru Kenyatta to intervene on the matter to lock out cartels from interfering with the appointment of a new VC at the institution.

Keter dismissed claims that leaders from the North Rift region were fighting for Prof Isaac Kosgey’s appointment on the basis of tribalism and said they were pushing for merit-based appointment.

He said he will continue fighting for what is right and pointed out that he won’t be cowed by the cartels who are out to shortchange Prof Isaac Kosgey from being appointed as the substantive VC.

“We are not pushing for the appointment of Prof Kosgey on the basis of tribalism but because we want merit to be adhered to,” added Keter.
