Catholic University of Eastern Africa shuts down two campuses

The closer follows a special inspection by the Commission for University Education (CUE).

The Christian university based in Karen has shut down its campuses in Nairobi city centre and Kisumu in a bid to conform to the tough education regulations introduced early this year.

Vice chancellor Justus Mbae said the closure will take effect in January next year.

“We must hasten to add that this decision has been arrived at after careful consideration of the effect it will have on the students and staff particularly and all those concerned. We take this opportunity to inform the students, staff, parents, guardians, benefactors, suppliers and stakeholders that following this development, necessary arrangements are being undertaken for a smooth transition.” Said Prof Mbae.

Catholic University’s main campus in Karen will not be affected.

The closer follows a special inspection by the Commission for University Education (CUE), which was conducted last month.

The Universities (Amendment) Act 2016, handed degree programme accreditation task to CUE which can engage professional bodies and associations to carry out inspection of universities on its behalf.

CUE also looks at the structure of a programme, its mode of delivery, availability of academic resources to implement it, the mode of assessment, learning environment of the university, its learning facilities and also extra-curricular activities.

A report on the three institutions is yet to be made public, but CUE Chairman Chacha Nyaigoti Chacha said it would be concluded soon.

The Vice chancellor in a circular dated October 17 to all stakeholders added that CUE has been informed of the planned closure of the campuses.
