Blame universities for big drop in standards

By: MUGAMBI MIRITI

That universities are underfunded and understaffed is the worst kept secret in Kenya.

The government may use the tired line that they do not have enough money but runaway corruption and wastage points to the contrary.

The deteriorating standards in our universities are no surprise. The universities themselves are not blameless.

Mismanagement and turf wars have been well documented. Universities should be run like blue-chip companies. Accountability and financial prudence should be non-negotiable.
