Varsities may close as talks collapse

11 November 2011, 11:16

Nairobi - Daily Nation sources revealed that the striking vice-chancellors and workers’ representatives were told there was no money to meet their wage demands at this time, as they met up with Higher Education Minister Margaret Kamar, assistant minister Kilemi Mwiria and permanent secretary Crispus Kiamba.

The dons were reminded that Kenya is at war with Al-Shabaab extremists in neighbouring Somalia and urged to demonstrate patriotism.
As the meeting ended on Thursday evening, there were indications of a stalemate as top officials of the Universities Academic Staff Union (Uasu), secretary-general Muga K’Olale and chairman Sammy Kubasu, were not at the meeting.

K’Olale accussed the government of mischief in the way it was conducting negotiations, as he was not aware of the meeting which had been convened by Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
