Campus watch

Rush against time

With the release of exam timetables in various schools, many comrades are now seen scampering for their books- a common phenomenon that climax every semester’s activities. The exams which are scheduled to commence in the next three weeks have elicited a bee- hive of activities; the immediate release of the timetables was preceded with a perquisite school fees clearance and signing of nominal rolls in respective schools.

The academic corridors are now filled with focused students and the number of students skiving lectures has drastically reduced.

Uasu convenes another meeting

This follows last weeks meeting where the lecturers boycotted another meeting when the two could not agree, on what they term as a bureaucratic conspiracy by University Management in League with the newly appointed Deans.

The ad hoc committee which was formed by Moi University to oversee the allocation of privately sponsored students programme PSSP money, are in an impasse with UASU, after the staff adamantly disagreed with the University’s decision to slash their 35% of the total money payable to them as direct services.

UASU are demanding the University to account for the 65% share they take. The crucial meeting is set to be held at Moi University Senior Club and Guest House at the College of Heath Sciences, Town Campus today in the afternoon.
