Hashtag operation Mbithi out of UoN now trends online


Dirty operations by the controversial University of Nairobi Vice Chancellor Peter Mbithi could be used to block renewal of his services at the top learning institution.

Already online warriors have kicked off an intensified campaign under the hash tag #operationMbithioutofUoN.

Mbithi, a professor of veterinary frustrated the current Education CS George Magoha when the no-nonsense accomplished surgeon left the plum CV seat to Mbithi and returned to the lecture hall.

His appointment as the VC is surrounded by controversies though he believes ODM leader Raila Odinga was behind his back to back troubles at the University.

Mbithi is a known staunch supporter to the Deputy President William Ruto perceived to be his political godfather.

Prof. Mbithi is said to have manipulated the council members as he went on influencing the council to dance to his tune in significant appointments of four deputy vice chancellors.

Mbithi has been under fire for working on a scheme that saw the appointment of the DVCs.

The move to create the new positions was tantamount to whittling down the office of the DVCs as well as creating parallel centers of power with Mbithi office remaining powerful as he perfected the art of divide and rule.

Analysts have pointed out that under the leadership of Prof Mbithi, the University of Nairobi has been staring a bleak future as the man known as expert in intrigues and master strategist has milked the institution dry.

There are reports that he has left the institution indebted to suppliers and workers and has resorted to overdrafts to pay salaries and suppliers and severally banks are said to have blacklisted the once prestigious University.

With a new council in place, Mbithi is a troubled man, now looking for ways to block the council from knowing the evils happening behind closed doors.

Multiple sources within the university indicated that Mbithi has made sure that the new council remains in the dark, lest they order for an audit that will see the end of Prof Mbithi at the helm.
