The court has allowed CS George Magoha and Stephen Kiama to negotiate and resolve the leadership crisis of the UoN Vice chancellor.

Magoha had sought 30 days for further consultations to settle the matter.

Public service commission also agreed that if the contestants are willing and have agreed to try resolve the matter amicably, it should be only fair they board that train.

 

The CS sought the 30 days with a view to engage and file a consent.

Justice Maureen Onyango directed that the parties are at liberty to agree and resolve on who will be the university VC and appear in court on February on 27 for the hearing.

Magoha had revoked the appointment of Kiama and dissolved the university council two weeks ago.

But last week, the High Court stopped Magoha from appointing an interim VC, chairperson and members to the University of Nairobi council.

Magoha's action split the university fraternity two-fold. One in support of the Vice Chancellor's revocation while the second is against it.
