The audit was launched in December 2023 and involved the counter-checking and verification of documents with various instructions to confirm authenticity.

According to a related report that occurred in a local daily, the TUK chapter of the University Academic Staff Union (UASU) has written to its members regarding the sackings which take effect from July 1, 2024.

“It has come to the attention of the union (from colleagues) of the above captioned matter. Some members of staff have received letters from the university management notifying them of their intended removal from the payroll, effective July 1 2024,” the organization stated through a letter by the chapter secretary, Fred Wanyonyi Sawenja.


“This is to inform all the affected members to immediately share the details of their letters with the chapter office for advice on the way forward.”
