Matiang’i shuts down Presbyterian University of East Africa

Acting Education Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred Matiang’i on Thursday, January 25 has revoked the operating license of the Presbyterian University of East Africa.

Matiang’i further directed the Commission for University Education (CUE ) to start the process of winding up the university.

This comes just three days after the regulator recommended the closure of the university and a financial audit of Kenya Methodist University and Catholic University of Eastern Africa.

In a report to the ministry, CUE highlighted outright conflicts of interest between the church and the universities.
