In other appointments to various government universities, Machogu appointed Dr. Angelica Obaga as a member of the Council of the Multimedia University for a period of three years.

Crispus Kiamba was appointed as the Chairperson of the South Eastern Kenya University (SEKU) Council for three years starting April 5.

Additionally, Fancy Kemei and John Nyakawa Ondari were appointed as council members for the same duration.

The notice reads that, “In exercise of the powers conferred by section 36 of the Universities Act, the Cabinet Secretary for Education appoints Ben M. Momanyi to be a member of the Council of Kirinyaga University, for a period of three years with effect from April 5, 2024.”

Moving beyond public universities, CS Machogu appointed Laurence Okelo and Vincent Moseti Nyabiosi as members of the Commission for University Education (CUE) for three years.

These appointments align with the aim of enhancing the performance of public universities to achieve world-class standards. In May 2023, he designated 62 other individuals to occupy various positions in public universities.

In March 2023, Machogu made similar appointments by restructuring the Meru University Council.

Notably, the council plays several roles, including ensuring proper accountability and management of finances, property, and investments.

Furthermore, it oversees the institution’s operations and activities on behalf of the government, ensuring the presence of adequate structures for efficient management, as outlined in the Universities Act.
