Daystar University sacks its VC

His position has already been taken up.

His position will be immediately taken up by Prof James Kombo in acting capacity.

Daystar’s University twitter account read, "This is to inform the university community that the council has terminated the services of ... Wachira. Wachira is in the process of handing over and clearing from the university."

Mr Wachira's reign at the university has been dogged by controversies since last year, with mismanagement raising many accusations against him.

Numerous protests

The latest decision could be a culmination of a series of measures to sanitise the institution after a series of strikes by the students at the precious institution, who blamed the institution for lack of good management.

At that time, the institution's senate called for investigations on issues raised by the student council and directed that the report be handed in on February 15. Students had accused Daystar of being secretive about the contents of the report.

They also complained about poor meals, facilities and financial mismanagement, adding that tuition had increased without proper notification.

On December 18 last year, he was sent on a sabbatical leave and Kombo asked to take over after the university's closure.
