Acting Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i has revoked the operation license of Presbyterian University of East Africa.

Dr Matiang’i has directed the Commission for University Education (CUE) to start the process of winding up the university in line with the provisions of the Universities Act and university regulations.

The decision was made following the recommendations made by CUE.

In a report to the CS dated January 22, CUE recommended that the letter of interim authority awarded to the university in 2007 be revoked.

The report says staff at the university have not been paid for the past two years and the institution has unpaid arrears on salaries and allowances amounting to Sh611 million.
