Acting Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i has revoked the operation license of Presbyterian University of East Africa.
In line with the provisions of the Universities Act and Universities regulations, the CS has directed the Commission for University Education (CUE) to start the process of closing the University.
The decision follows the recommendations made by the CUE in a report to the CS dated January 22, that the letter of interim authority awarded to the university in 2007 be revoked.
Dr Matiang’i made the decision in a letter addressed to CUE chairman Chacha Nyaigoti Chacha.
Two other universities have been given a year to settle issues touching on their operations. This called for a financial audit of Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA) and Kenya Methodist University.
Through the report, the commission proposed that CUEA and KeMU be given a year to restructure their operations and get in a sound financial footing, failure to which their charters be nullified.
