Education Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed has announced the recruitment of public universities council members and chairpersons.

"Interested candidates for the position of chairperson should hold a minimum of an earned PhD degree from a recognised University. Applicants should not be public servants or active members of any university faculty," Ms Mohamed said on Monday

Those seeking to be members of councils should hold a minimum of an earned master’s degree (executive master's are not accepted) from a recognized university.

"Applicants should not be public servants or active members of any university faculty," she said.

Applications should be submitted by May 29. Those interested should apply to the Education Cabinet secretary, Jogoo House B, PO BOX 30040, Nairobi.

The University of Nairobi will now have a council after waiting for more than one year.

High Court judge George Odunga on February 13 ruled that recruitment of university councils members and chairpersons must be open, transparent and competitive.
