Embattled Kenyatta University Vice Chancellor Prof. Paul Wainaina has finally been officially dismissed by the Institution’s council.

In a circular to staff on Monday, acting Vice Chancellor Prof. Waceke Wanjohi said that the University has written a letter to Wainaina, notifying him of the dismissal.

“Further to the earlier communication from the Kenyatta University Council, I write to inform you that the Council vide a letter to Prof. Paul K. Wainaina, resolved to summarily dismiss him from service with effect from 5th August 2022,” Waceke wrote in a statement.

He urged the University to remain focused and shun any communications from the dismissed Vice Chancellor.

“Therefore any communication and/or instructions from him are null and void. I therefore request you to remain focused and ensure that the University continues to run smoothly without any disruption,” he said.

Wainaina was sacked on July 12, after a standoff between him and the government occasioned by a piece of the University’s parcel of land.

“Pending the hearing and determination of this application inter-parties, this honourable court is pleased to issue a temporary order suspending the implementation of the decision contained in the letter dated July 12 by Professor Crispus Kiamba in to suspending, terminating and/or dismissing the petitioner from the Office of the Vice-Chancellor, rendering his position vacant and/or revoking his salary,” Justice Jacob Gateri ruled.

Before his clash with the state, Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua in two letters dated July 4 and July 7 instructed Prof. Wainaina to give up the title for Kenyatta University LR No. 1102/26 so that the Ministry of Lands and Planning could seize a portion of the land as ordered by the Cabinet.
